VIDEO: 100 years of subway maps

Behold: a century of subway maps.

The folks at Gizmodo took it upon themselves to create a video that shows the slow evolution of New York City's subway maps.

The lines begin in Brooklyn, slowly snake their way into Manhattan, and finally become the subways we've come to love and hate. We have to admit, watching the transformation of the trains was kind of cathartic; there's even a sweet release when colors finally creep onto the map.

What confused us the most was the epic electro soundtrack — it kind of made us feel like we were watching Tom Cruise ride into the sunset...but not.
