1979 NYC Subway Map

Recommended Posts

Since the topic of the Subway in the 1970s has been 'Mind-Boggling' many of us who weren't around yet to witness it, I have scanned a few sections of one of my 1979 NYC Subway Maps for us to view. With the information the map feeds off, we can discuss how the Transit Authority has changed or swapped services over the past 28-30 years. There will definitely be Pro's and Con's

Very cool thanks for posting. That's about the same exact map that I remember into the early eighties. I remember when I used to see the JFK Express at 34 St Herald Square as a kid. I wanted to ride one bad. I never got to ride it.

I also see and remember the B35 connection visible between Church Av station and 9th Av station after the termination of the Culver shuttle '75.

Thanks, Zach! :) If they had stayed, the (EE) would've become yellow and the (K) orange. It's interesting to think what color the (MJ) and the (8) might've become.

 

 

True man, your right..

 

The 8 is green though. Ive seen it on the R62/A rollsign

if only the N still went up to continental today...

 

I always wondered what it would still be like if the N and R never exchanged terminals in Queens in 1987, and the N went to Forest Hills-71 Av, and the R to Astoria...:confused:
