025 Subway Directionals

It happens to us all; we get to the top of the subway and spin around trying to orient ourselves. Being oriented is a matter of pride in being a New Yorker, but this is a moment of feeling like a tourist. It’s so easy to solve but no one has ever bothered (are we all too proud to even admit our occasional disorientation?) but a simple “compass rose” set into the sidewalk at the top of each stair would instantly make all of us feel like real New Yorkers!
