Heh, I never thought about how Vignelli’s map design (below) was shunned at the time because it inaccurately portrayed the distances of stops and locations of city streets above ground. Because crime was such a big problem, it gave people anxiety about being underground longer than they needed to be.
Here’s a giant 48”x72” geographically-accurate NYC Subway track map you can buy for $300. A track map is slightly different than a normal Subway map in that it shows how stations and tracks overlap and join instead of simplifying it all as solid color lines. The map has no sharp angles since all tracks are curved and also includes the non-station portions of tracks in the NYC transit system.
