Get Lost!

Get Lost! restores NYC’s Metropolitan Transit Authority’s subway maps and signage to what they may have geographically looked and sounded like prior to colonial intervention in 1609. The restorations, based on the 18th century military cartography and toponymy of the city, erase 400 years of accumulated history. Station names, neighborhoods, and subway lines are erased, returning New York City to the original green spaces, streams, ponds, and shores that the Lenni Lenape Native Americans once inhabited. Inserted into the subway system, these restorations provide the public a glimpse of the native, colonial, and military traces of New York City.
