my kingdom for a metro

Hartford Metro Map, originally uploaded by jamesplankton.

CT- and DC-based designer Brian Cook has conjured up a Metro for Hartford, if only on paper. The Orange and Red lines intersect at the Capitol, with major hubs at the Old State House and in the West End, while the Yellow line loops around the Downtown area and into the North and South Ends. Other lines crisscross the city and dip into the suburbs, east of the river and even BDL. It looks great on paper, makes complete sense, and we salivate at the thought of such a thing coming to fruition.

Subway maps from NYC and Paris are all the rage in decor magazines and catalogs, and a print of this is going to look great on our wall… and yours. Size is 27″ x 16.5″ and all post-printing proceeds go to ConnectiKids.
