Interactive Transit Map
was a helpful idea, most of the time I didn’t have an Internet connection handy, so I had to resort to good old analog maps—or calling people who had a computer handy, which turned out to not work so well.
I really could have used a
New York Subway Credit Card map. This $13 stainless steel card fits perfectly in the wallet and contains an insanely detailed map of New York’s
subway system. I got around via subway pretty easily, fortunately, making me wish that I’d just stuck with it in the first place. That’ll teach me to try and get some exercise in.
For those of a more international bent, there’s a version of the card for the London Underground as well.
