Poring over various subway map designs is a NYC pastime, from Massimo Vignelli’s classic 1972 design to concentric circle versions, from Super Mario-enhanced maps to globally uniform editions. Add this to the pile of fun: a new animated map which shows the history of subway lines in chronological order.

The animated GIF below, created by Very Appealing, starts with the blank subway map and draws each line in the sequence in which it was built. The map covers over 150 years of NYC transit history (though don’t expect to see the Second Avenue Subway, which is a phrase you’ve probably heard for the last decade).
