[Homework]2012-01-30 超级城市纽约 NewYork—1

To really know what makes a  great city work, you have peel back its skin and expose its secret life force-- a system of incredible complexity and technology that millions depend on but few understand. The fantastic voyage now begins, a journey deep inside the world's megacities. They call it the big apple, the largest metropolis in America.8 million people scattered across 5 barrels, each the city in its self. The call of the big apple, the bustling barrel of Manhattan. Like no place on Earth, New York is famous for its pace, yet life here will slow to a crawl without one vital piece of infrastructure,perhaps the most famous transportation in the world--the New York subway. Its the engine that drives the megacity. 75% of New Yorkers have no car. They don't need one. New York has the best transport system in America, yet the subway is the system under siege. Daily it faces a triple threat, from man, from nature, and from time, coupling parrels and mined reels. Two-thirds of the subway runs underground, under roads, under rivers, under skyscrapers. The system truly put the city's weight on its shoulders. Billion tons of concrete and steels ** to earth or burying down. Millions of liters of water threatening to flood in. A hundred-year-old  net work struggling to keep up. And the most ominous number of all--9/11. In these dark shadows, the specter of terrorism is no illusion. It's a nightmare that New York survived, and struggles daily to never relieve.
