Next time you ride the subway in the Big Apple, keep your eyes peeled for these New York subway compasses. These directional aids have been anonymously spray-painted outside of subway stations to help re-orient travelers.

Apparently the idea for New York subway compasses has been tried before. It was deemed an epic failure, but someone else has obviously thought differently. I like this idea. Many times I have found myself confused after stepping out of the subway station. Wandering aimlessly around to re-orient yourself is never any fun.
