To really know what makes a great city work , you have to peel back its skin, and exposed(这个词是什么成分啊?怎么觉得句子不太通顺) in 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 ,(删掉) the world's megacities. They call it the Big Apple, the largest and(删掉) metropolis  in America.
8 million people scattered across 5 boroughs (学习了) , each a city in (新增) itself. The core of the Big Apple, the bustling boroughs of Manhattan. Like no place on earth, New York is famed for its pace, yet life here would slow to a crawl 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,yet the subway is a system under siege. Daily it faces a triple threat ,from man ,from nature ,and from time ,combined parrels (什么意思) ,and mined 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, asphalt (哈哈,这个词好多同学没听出来) and earth all burrying down. Millions of liters of water threatening to flood in, a hundred-year-old network struggling to keep up, and the most ominous number of all 9`11 (这四个小分句是不是用逗号跟在shoulders的后面做同位语说明weight?否则,现在的句子好像语法不通,缺少谓语).In these dark shadows ,the spector of terrorism is no illusion .It's a nightmare New York survived and struggles daily to never relieve.

这一篇有好几个词我没听出来,跟你学习了
