The New York City Subway Lines Project:
WHAT IS IT?
The New York City Subway didn't always look like it does today. From its inception in 1904, it went through several changes: new tracks, abandoned stations, new lines, new companies, and the Great Renaming. This is an attempt to track these changes.
WHAT'S THE GREAT RENAMING?
GET TO IT, ALREADY!
