Deep Beneath Manhattan's Streets: The Construction of NYC's New Subway

Deep Beneath Manhattan's Streets: The Construction of NYC's New Subway | Transportation | Scoop.it
There are large, damp, labyrinthine caves and hulking monsters beneath the borough of Manhattan. However, they are not the kind that feature in B movies, but rather are the product of human industry. These vast caverns under one of the world’s most vibrant cities have been bored, drilled and blasted to create New York’s newest subway, the Second Avenue Subway. Inside the cavities are bright yellow “monsters,” the heavy machinery required for such a massive undertaking.

Subterranean History: Beautiful Abandoned NYC Subway Station | Transportation | Scoop.it
The City Hall subway stop is well-known to NYC history buffs, but until now it hasn’t been easy to catch a glimpse of this unique bit of New York. Recently, a change in Transit Authority rules have made it possible for anyone to see the long-abandoned station – as long as you don’t mind seeing it from a moving train.

A Treasure Trove Of Historical New York City Subway Maps | Transportation | Scoop.it
NYCSubway.org is an impressive resource for information about the New York City subway system. The website has an entire page dedicated to the archiving of historical NYC subway maps that date from 1880 to the present day—the page also features a smaller selection of bus maps.

New York Architecture Images- Penn Station

New York Architecture Images- Penn Station | Transportation | Scoop.it
"Any city gets what it admires, will pay for, and, ultimately, deserves. Even when we had Penn Station, we couldn’t afford to keep it clean. We want and deserve tin-can architecture in a tinhorn culture. And we will probably be judged not by the monuments we build but by those we have destroyed."- "Farewell to Penn Station," New York Times editorial, October 30, 1963

Meet me at the clock: new logo for Grand Central | Pentagram

Meet me at the clock: new logo for Grand Central | Pentagram | Transportation | Scoop.it
The new logo for Grand Central is inspired by the clock in the Terminal's Main Concourse. The hands in the logo point to 7:13, or 19:13 in trainmaster's time, for the year Grand Central first opened. The strikingly modern sans serif typeface Avenir was chosen for the logo in recognition that the Terminal will continue to have a vital role in the future of the city. The designers developed a graphic language for Terminal marketing around the word "Grand." Project Team: Michael Bierut, partner-in-charge and designer; Joe Marianek, designer.
