Because Marble Hill is part of the borough of Manhattan.

But the operative word is S L O W L Y because I often get to a new map but do not have my camera.

You would think the MTA would post them but if they do, I have never found the site.

Not sure if you have a smartphone, but if you do there are several apps which include this information. Otherwise you may be able to search for the app maps online?

The screen capture below is from NYCMate, which shows the footprint of a station, complete with staircases overlaid on a street and transit line map. As long as you've downloaded these maps via the internet at some point before going underground you can access them there, so quite handy.

Edited to add - the resolution isn't great because I had to shrink the image to attach, but the stairs are actually there -they're the little cross-hatch looking things next to the stations!

Couple snaps photos at all of Manhattan’s 118 subway stops-subway-map-3.png

On the bright side they are leaving the city on the downside more and more people keep coming and doing attention seeking things.
