Elevation Near the New Second Avenue Subway
In the map below, I brought in an old typographical map and some elevation contour lines for the east side of Manhattan. I was able to bring in the Lexington Avenue subway map but unfortunately, I was not able to locate a new shapefile dealing with the the Second Avenue Line that opened a few days ago. Second Avenue is two blocks east of the Lexington Avenue Line (shown in green). Notice the change of elevation along Second Avenue in Manhattan. At particular locations, the Second Avenue El had to be built higher to avoid all these dips. When I locate a new subway shapefile, I'll add it. The old typographical map is interesting.
