From the Department of Small but Useful Changes:

The MTA's got a new interactive map, though it's so basic you can't believe they didn't have it already.  At the MTA.info site, the subway map is now "interactive," meaning you can move it around and zoom in on parts of it, for "easier viewing of fine grain details," as the MTA put it in a press release.  Which also makes it easier to view on a tablet or smart phone. Before, there was just a static PDF.

Check this out, City up-zones 4th Avenue in Park Slope, Greenwood Heights and Sunset Park premised on subway providing access. Then the MTA cuts back on service at night. Can we come together on this?

What would make it actually "interactive" would be the ability to click on stations for info such as elevator/escalator status, train arrivals and trip itineraries. The neighborhood maps (a la Weekender) should also be tied in.
