Submission - Aerial Photo of New York City with Rail Lines Superimposed 
Fantastic work from Transit Maps reader Arnorian showing the New York Subway, PATH and NJ Transit Lines on top of an aerial photograph of central New York City. When you view a transit system like New York’s through the limitations of a small printed or on-line map (be it the official map, the Vignelli diagram or even the hybrid Kick Map), it’s easy to forget just how big and complex it is. A representation like this shows that complexity and scale to full effect, and also looks quite breathtakingly gorgeous.

On the shuttle ride home last night, I had my camera with me so I took some photos. I’d love to take some more on-the-road photos. I love watching the double or triple reflections in the big bus windows.
On this level is where the trolleys used to run. Public transit over the bridge. God I want it back. I want it back. We can’t sustain this.
In a traffic jam the other day with a friend, I complained. I said it was unnatural. Why don’t we value public transit anymore? What are the ways we can bring it back? We kept saying, it must be a baseball game. But does it make sense for everyone to drive into San Francisco, separately, in their cars, to go see a baseball game? To burn up gas for over an hour for a twenty minute drive? Why can’t there be buses, why don’t people get out of their cars and find other ways? MY guess is because the other ways aren’t encouraged. But L and I took a bus from MLK to SF one day, from the street to the street, no BART, and it was great. We took our bikes and then rode over the GG Bridge. I want the trains. I want them all back.
