Zoom In: People Using the New Interactive Subway Maps

02.14.14 Aymann Ismail

The MTA recently unleashed their modern, interactive On the Go! kiosks at Penn Station and Grand Central Terminal, as well as Bowling Green, Atlantic Ave-Barclays Center and Jackson Heights-Roosevelt Ave subway stops. The touchscreen kiosks look like 47-inch iPads and provide directions and subway schedules. I stopped by the newly installed kiosks at Grand Central and people seem to be somewhat confused. Almost everyone who approached the displays, poked around it curiously, giggling and frowning. A tourist was attempting to use the display while simultaneously examining his paper subway map. It might take a little while to get used to. Check back every Friday for a new photo essay! (Photos: Aymann Ismail/ANIMALNewYork)
