This Interactive NYC Subway Map Lets You Visualize How Far You Can Travel in X Minutes

The NYC Travel Time Map is a unique interactive map from developer and designer Nate Parrott that allows you to see how far you can get in the subway from any stop at different times throughout the day. So if you click Grand Central to start, the map will distort itself to fall inside and outside the 30 and 60 minutes away rings to be accurate.

My favorite thing about the NYC subway map is how it's not geographically accurate—it disorts the sizes and shapes of boroughs to make the map easier to read. I thought it might be fun to make a subway map that distorts geography an a different way: based on travel times between stops.

Check out the interactive map to play around with the data.
