To really know what makes a great city work, you have to peel back its skin and expose its secret life force. 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 mecacities. They call it the Big Apple.The largest metropolis in America. 8 miilion people scattered across 5 barries,each a city in itself.The core of the Big Apple--the bustling barrie of Manhattan. Like no place on earth, New York is famed for its pace. Yet life here would slow to a crawl withour one vital piece of infrastructure. Perhaps the most famous translation system in the world--the New York subway. It's the engine that drives this mecacity. 75% of New Yorkers have no car.They don't need one. New York has the best transit system in America. Yet the subway is a system under siege.Daily it faces triple threat--from man,from nature and from time. Camp a params and mind reels. Tow thirds of the subway runs underground,underroads,underrivers,underskyscrapers. The system truly carries the weight of the city on its shoulders.Billions of tons of concrete and steels,asphatum and earth all burying down. Millions of liters of water threadening to flood in. 100-year-old network struggling to keep up and the most ominous number of all--911. In these dark shadows the spector of terrorism is no illusion. It's a nightmare New York survived and struggles daily to never relieve.
