      NY Subway Map. In 1972, the Italian designer Massimo Vignelli redesigned G Salomon's NY Subway map. It was a marvelous conceptual map, & it was easy to read. No more messy angles. Instead, train lines would run at 45 and 90 angles only. Each line was represented by a color. Each stop represented by a dot. The result was a design solution of surprising beauty. To make the map work graphically meant that a few geographic liberties had to be taken
