Tourist information

People outside Empire State Building look at posted information that tells them where they are and what is in the neighborhood.

It seems to me the subway used to have maps at most of its stations that had arrows pointing to the station where you were and the letters " YOU ARE HERE.".... a lot of them seem to have disappeared or maybe it is just that I don't notice them anymore.

They used to give out free subway maps at the token booths. Tokens are a thing of the past, we now use this plastic Metrocard. Free maps are a thing of the past I guess too.

People visiting New York should go on the internet and try to get a map of the subway system. You can ask people for information on the trains but you can never be sure they really know what they are talking about.
