Rachel Abrams helps design New York City’s new wayfinding system

Faculty Rachel Abrams working as part of design consortium PentaCityGroup, helped design New York City’s new wayfinding system.

From Pentagram’s announcement:

On Monday the New York City Department of Transportation introduced WalkNYC, a new program of pedestrian maps that makes it easier to navigate the city streets. DOT Commissioner Janette Sadik-Khan unveiled the initiative’s first signs at a news conference in Chinatown, where four maps were installed over the weekend.  In addition to Chinatown: [T]he first phase of the program will be implemented this summer in Midtown Manhattan, Prospect Heights in Brooklyn, and Long Island City in Queens, with more to follow next year in other parts of the city. The maps are already installed on over 300 kiosks of the CitiBike bike-share program.

Congratulations to all!
