NEW YORK (DICK) SUBWAY MAP 

– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –


Although this fantastic map is now a decade old, we at NYD feel that not much about New York Dick-ness has changed and that not enough people have had a chance to enjoy this fine artwork.

As designer/illustrator Veit Schuetz shows us, the subway system, in fact the entire city, can be visualized as a big complicated wang/package.

Schuetz created this piece for Cosmic Art Enterprises’ annual art exhibition in Brooklyn in the spring of 2000. And how did this dicky masterpiece come into existence? The artist states "While the conception took only one hour of desperate staring at a map in a deserted New York subway station at 4 a.m., finishing the design in an accurate way required a lot more patience." 

Were there any weiners drawn on that map to help light the fire of inspiration, we hope so. But even if the dangling masses of NYC were clean as a whistle that night the muse of New York dick-ness was certainly in that station somewhere, it always is.

Thanks to Veit Schuetz for the background info on this piece, and thanks also for bringing this map into being. All of us can appreciate the patience, skill and creativity that it takes to turn a genital dream into a genital reality.

Prints are available in the US through Imagekind. Take a look, it's not just the walls of the subway that can be improved with a little NYD, this big fleshy unit can improve your walls at home too.
