Every good New York apartment needs a map of some kind, be it a cycling map or a subway map. For one, a map hanging on the wall makes you look smart. And also, it’s nice to see where you’re going without looking at a screen, especially in the event that Google finally becomes sentient and rises up against us. If you’re going to have a subway map though, why not have a little fun with it, and buy this full color, actually useful Super Mario World subway map from Ript?
It’s the perfect gift for those who are obsessed with tubes of both the plumbing and train variety. And, despite the cartoonish graphics and garnishes of Super Mario World iconography, this is an actual, up to date subway map that really will help you get to where you need to go. Hell, the creators even included Staten Island and the JFK air train, just like an actual dry and boring subway map has. $25 for an 18″ x 24″ print, from Ript
