These are random moments in the life of an indecent designer and the city she loves.

To read my grudging babblings about design, click the button.

And can we really measure
If we think we're any better
than that skyline that goes on and on
forever, on and on...."

Everybody in this world wants the same damned thing-
just not at the same time.

I am a female, carbon based lifeform.
I am a New York City Native.
I am a Design Professional.
I take photographs.
I also sculpt, paint, create mosaics, and play with weapons.

And sometimes, I even dance about Architecture.

What I see, is what you get.

Tourists. Not natives. Tourists.

Also, wow... the L train is pretty fucked, yo.

So, the white characters in the black discs refer to the trains and each flyer tells you of specific changes to schedule. I'd imagine that with a subway map it should be pretty straightforward, but then I've probably been reading this moblog too long and already have some vicarious familiarity with train and station names :)

That would be correct.

In reality, it's actually even less confusing. The truth is that one rarely has to use more than a handful of subway lines in the course of your average day, and they tend to be the same ones.

I haven't had a need to be on an L train, for example, in *years*. So largely, I can ignore those. You wind up whittling them down like that and eventually there's really only a couple you have to pay attention to at all.

I think so, but people seem to think the subway system is intimidating. I guess it's because it's just so extensive, and there's a lot of lines to keep track of.

Yes, but *you*, my expanding little incubator, are hardly your average tourista.
