Map: Roz Chast plans a Second Ave. Subway

By · Published in 2012

My mom was the first to point out the great cover on this week’s New Yorker. Roz Chast, my favorite cartoonist, offered up her take on the Second Ave. Subway routing. I particularly enjoy the detour to Nebraska in between 34th and 42nd Streets. Sending the eventual T train out to Brighton Beach or even the Yukon Territories isn’t a half bad idea either.

    Nonstop from Tenafly to Mt. Fuji…. or 86th Street to Vegas… all for $2.25. Not a bad deal!

  2. Alon Levy says:

    A lot of astrophysicists would be interested in riding to Saturn, I’m sure.

  3. John-2 says:

    Yea, but if they’re going to Mt. Fuji or the Yukon Territories, they’ll have to have 40 passport inspectors per car at each station (or 32, if the MTA opts to move the aging R-68 trains over to the Second Avenue line).

  4. Jerrold says:

    Was she the same cartoonist who did that famous “A Manhattanite’s View of the World” cover a long time ago? (You know, New Jersey, California, Hawaii, Japan, China……) Some of us here must remember that one.

  5. Walter says:

    Hate to be the one, but it’s officially the Yukon Territory, singular. It’s next-door neighbor to the east is the Northwest Territories, plural.

  6. Jason B. says:

    Spot on with the stop at the center of the Earth though. That’s basically how deep these stations will be.

  7. BBnet3000 says:

    We’re as likely to see a train to some of those other places as we are to see the second ave subway finished in our lifetimes im afraid.

  8. SEAN says:

    What! You mean I have to transfer in Tokyo? Dam!

  9. Chet says:

    Even with all that, STILL no stop on Staten Island!!

  10. Robert in Calgary says:

    As a Calgarian, I wouldn’t mind adding a stop here on the 34th Street – Yukon section.

  11. Ben says:

    I approve of a subway stop in Tenafly! If only it didn’t require detours to Mt. Fuji, Papua New Guinea and Saturn.
