Re: 30 years ago - 1972 Vignelli NYC subway map release

I know the geographic issues are what most people focus on, but even ignoring that, I don't like the design.

With the London map, the lines seem more narrow, and you don't have lots or places where 4 or more lines run together. In fact, there are not many places where 3 lines run together.

With so much space taken up by the thick lines on the Vignelli map, I feel the station names get lost.
On the tube map, I can't think of any place where the space taken by the lines is anywhere close to the width of the station name. The Vignelli map is covered with those situations.
