Old NYC Subway Maps?

Recommended Posts

I was wondering, does anyone have any old maps they might want to give away/sell/trade for? I'm looking for the 1979-1998 era map, looks like this. In particular I like the ones with the JFK Express (80s), B/Q/F/S running to Queensbridge at various times (late 90s), R to 179th Street, individual route maps on the back. Thanks.

I have the 1980 subway map, not looking to sell but just worth mentioning that I AM TRYING TO FIND IT!!!

 

Looking for things has to be the most infuriating activity of all time...

Old subway maps... look for them on e-bay!

 

Surprisingly enough, a NYC subway map from the late 70's was recently for bid on german ebay. Since demand for NYC transit memorabilia isn't too high here in Germany, I luckily got the map (near mint condition) for 1 Euro (1,60$)...

there use to be subway line that ran on the brooklyn bridge?

 

Yup some of the old elevated lines used to roll over the BB - wonder what they called it...the Brooky-B??...from an old terminal at Park Row in Manhattan. They used the protected inner part of the BB

That bridge is amazingly well engineered. I have not been on it in my entire life, but i've been on all the other bridges and in all the tunnels in the city. Time for a trip!!!!

I have an old NYC map booklet from 1964 which I put on my website. Don't know if anyones interested in that time but it has some subway maps and the old line names. Feel free to save anything of interest.

I have the book the map booklet came from: Hart's Guide To New York City copyright 1964. Interesting 1,408 page guidebook (including the 64 page map section between pages 672 and 673) published during the 1964-1965 World's Fair.

 

The borough neighborhood and subway maps are nice.

MTR Admiralty: pete63 did. Click on the link above to see any of the maps (they're the same as the ones in my Hart's Guide To New York City - even the map from the endpapers in included.) The subway and PATH time maps are interesting also.
