Next month, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority will unveil a resized, recolored and simplified edition of the well-known map, its first overhaul in more than a decade.
The new subway map makes Manhattan even bigger, reduces Staten Island and continues to buck the trend of the angular maps once used here and still preferred in many other major cities.
Detailed information on bus connections that was added in 1998 has been considerably shortened. The subway lines now have shadows that the Metropolitan Transportation Authority says will make the lines stand out. City Island, missing on some recent maps, has reappeared.
