Megacity New York

Hw

To really know what makes a great city work, you have to peel back its skin and expose its secret lives. A system of incredible complexity and technology that millions depend on but few understand. A 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 scatter across five burrows, each a city in itself. The core of The Big Apple, the bustling burrow of Manhattan. Like no place on earth, New York is famed for its pace. Yet life here was slow to a cruel without one vital piece of infrastructure. Perhaps the most famous transportation system in the world, the New York Subway. It is the engine that drives this megacity. 75% of New Yorkers have no car. They don’t need one. New York has the best transit system in America. Yep, the subway is the system under siege. Daily it faces a triple fret, from men, from nature and from time. Comfort parrots and the mind reels. Two thirds of the subway runs under ground, under roads, under rivers, under skyscrapers. The system truly carries the weight of the city on its shoulders. Billions of tons of concrete and steel, X-fold on earth or bearing down; Millions of liters of water threatening the flood dam; a hundred-year-old network struggling to keep up and the most eminence number of all, 911, in this dark shadows, the specter of terrorism is not illusion. It is a nightmare New York survived and struggles daily to never relieve.
