Although the map won't be accessible to everyone--the MTA is releasing it first in a collectible series--here is a Late Night Map, perfect for when you have to find your way back to the Bronx from Brooklyn.
The MTA has printed 25,000 copies of the map in tandem with its normal press run of a million copies of the standard subway and railroad map. The night map is available free of charge while supplies last at the New York Transit Museum, at Boerum Place & Schermerhorn Street in Downtown Brooklyn, and at the Transit Museum Annex in Grand Central Terminal.
The night map, developed in-house by the MTA, is the same size as the standard map and similarly folds into a handy pocket-sized document. In addition to the folded version, 300 pristine, unfolded press sheets of the night map are available for purchase at the Transit Museum Annex for $20 each.
The following details the major differences in service shown on the night map, as compared with the standard subway map:
· Three subway lines (the B, C and Z) and the 42nd Street Shuttle do not operate overnight and are not shown on the map.
· Five subway lines offer shorter service than usual:
o The 3 terminates at Times Square.
o The 5 runs as a shuttle in the Bronx between E. 180 St and Dyre Av
o The M runs as a shuttle between Myrtle Av, Brooklyn, and Metropolitan Av, Queens.
o The Q terminates at 57 St/7 Av in Midtown Manhattan.
o The R runs as a shuttle in Brooklyn between 36 St and 95 St.
· Six lines make additional stops they don’t make during the daytime.
o The 2 makes all local stops in Manhattan.
o The 4 makes all local stops in Manhattan and Brooklyn and is extended to New Lots Av, Brooklyn.
o The A makes all local stops in Manhattan and Brooklyn; it runs to Far Rockaway but not Lefferts Blvd or Rockaway Park, which are served by shuttle trains.
o The D runs local via Fourth Av in Brooklyn.
o The E runs local via Queens Blvd.
o The N runs local via the Financial District.
· There is no skip/stop service on the J, which terminates at Chambers St on weekend overnight periods
· Six subway lines (the 1, 6, 7, F, G, and L) and Franklin Avenue Shuttle run their normal routes as local trains. (There is no 6 or 7 express service.)
