Welcome to the New York Subway Project!

The entries here represent a project I undertook in July 2007 to visit all 468 subway stations in New York City.

Begin with the interactive subway map to explore the New York subway stations. Navigate by choosing an individual station or use the keyboard to follow my journey chronologically through the system. This blog contains posts for each of the stations that I visited.

The post for every station contains notes on the interior of the station as well as my quick impressions of the surrounding neighborhood. Clicking on any stop will open up the corresponding post in a neighboring tab in your web browser. The majority of stops also have photographs (or sketches) from the area near the subway station. Hold your mouse over any station on the map and a thumbnail photo will load, if available.

For more information on the making of the project, motivations for it, as well as some disclaimers about its design, please click here.

For more information on my run-in-with the NYPD and subsequent lawsuit filed by the NYCLU during the making of the project, please click here.

I hope you enjoy the site and can use it to find out some new things about this amazing city!
