I honestly can’t recall how I came across this. Twitter? RSS? Email?

In any case, the image above, published to Flickr by Eric Fischer, is a map of proposed subway and elevated train routes through our fair city. I often imagine what could be transit-wise, failing to remember that some of that stuff is more “what might’ve been.” Or, in some cases, it’s “what used to be.” The freeways-all-over-the-damn-place stuff I can do without. These subway lines, on the other hand, are the shiznit.
