This nifty subway map highlights the best coffee shops located near each subway stop. At least according to the designer, Rickymikeabono, who posted the cartographical creation on Reddit the other day. In case you’re wondering about the research behind the placements:

[Coffee shops] were chosen based on what equipment they have, what beans they use, professional reviews (like zagat) and customer reviews (like yelp). Duplicates were avoided, and I tried to pick ones that represent their neighborhood. Some were the only option in the area. Of course, there was a lot of first-hand research.

Okay, sounds like there was plenty of effort involved. But let’s focus on the Lower East Side. The cafes singled out for inclusion include 12 Corners (East Broadway F), Home Espresso Bar (Delancey/Essex FMJZ), the Roasting Plant (Grand Street D), and Bluebird (2nd Avenue F).

Below is the systemwide map. What is your favorite coffee shop in the neighborhood, and did it make the cut?
