White Person's NYC Subway 

It's been a while since I blogged, but I could not resist posting this hilarious map I came across yesterday.

According to Jonathan Adams, this (click on thumbnail to enlarge) is what the NYC subway map ought to look like to a white person. Notice how the newly trendy parts of Brooklyn are marked as well, as are Yankee Stadium, Coney Island, and Forest Hills, for obvious reasons.
This map, though intended for white folks, can be used by people of color who live in the unmarked areas because the last stops on these lines should be where white people exit and seats are available for you to sit down. If they don’t get off, maybe you should remind them that they missed their last stop.
Truth be told though, I have seen white people above 86th Street on the west side, including at that university up there somewhere.
