(Pardon all the obvious wire holding it together. This photo was taken before I trimmed the excess, and in less-than-ideal lighting.)

Someone should manufacture this kind of thing using legitimate materials. I’d totally buy one.

For reference, here’s the actual Boston map. Ignore the thin purple (commuter rail) lines and the Silver Line, which—and I have nothing against bus rapid transit—is BS.
