This is just a static, offline-capable version of Massimo Vignelli's diagrammatic map of the New York City subway, commissioned by the MTA in 2011.

To make it, I simply looked at the network log of the MTA Weekender page to discover that the map is simply a series of tiled 256x256 PNG files. Then I made a Python script to fetch them all, and recombined them in a Web page with an appcache manifest.
