Excellent read on the New York Subway. Incredible details and great artwork on the building of the NY Subway. Must read before you head to NYC!

Today the NY Subway is the world's longest with 722 miles of track along 224 miles of routes. Over a billion riders each year pay up to $2 a trip. Beneath the sidewalks of New York, the subways have created a second city. Over 100 years after it opened, the subway remains the fastest way to get around NYC.
