Zoom In: People Using the New Interactive Subway Maps

February 14, 2014 | 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)
