Google Maps Adds NYC Subway System Layer, Available for Some Mobile Phones Too

Google has added a new layer to their Maps: the New York City Subway System. This will be handy for those of you attending SES New York next spring.

To use it, view New York City in Google Maps and then click the "More" option and select Transit.
