hyperreal cartography & the unrealized city
maps of real places that don't exist.
  1. "Destination… ARLINGTON and Beyond!"

    This was the brochure given out by the MBTA to build support for the proposed extension of the Red Line from Harvard to Lexington through Arlington.  The town declined service opting for improved bus service and a commuter bike path.

    It was hearing about this line through my home town that got me thinking about finding old maps of proposed and never built lines.  This brochure I got as a gift for my birthday 10 years ago and helped launch the futureMBTA.

    WHAT COULD HAVE BEEN: A Red Line train all the way to Lexington. I’ll never forgive Arlington for not letting this...
