Service Advisories

This great piece of what the Times calls "Op-Art," by Evan Eisenberg, is for some reason not at all available online, so I'm reproducing it here. The image is large but worth it. (Update: The Times fixed their site and you can now see the article and image here. Still included below but with a link to the real image.)







Separately, the City section's Q&A column addressed something that came up in conversation with rosefox the other day: the differing width of IRT (the numbered lines) subway cars and cars on the lettered lines of the IND and BMT. The former are two feet narrower than the latter, something that as a child I refused to believe when my father told me about it, until I actually looked at the cars and then wondered, "How did I not notice this before?"
