To really known what makes a great city work, you have to peel back at skin and expose its secret lives force: the 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 American. Eight million people scattered across five boroughs, each a city in itself. The core of the Big Apple: the bustling borough of Manhattan. Like no place o earth, New York is famed for its pace, yet life here would slow to crawl without one vital piece of infrastructure, perhaps the most important transportation system in the world—the New York subway. It’s the engine that drives this mega city. Seventy five percent of newyorkers have no car; they don’t need one. New York has the best transit system in American, yet the subway is the system under siege. Daily it faces a triple threat—from man, from nature and from time. Count imperils and mind reels(危机四伏). Two thirds of subway runs underground: under roads, under rivers, under skyscrapers. The system truly carries the weight of the city on the shoulders. Billions of tons of concrete and steel, asphalt and earth all bearing down, millions of liters of water threatening to flood in, a hundred-year-old network struggling to keep up and most ominous number of all--911: In this dark shadows, the specter of terrorism is no illusion. It’s a nightmare that New York survived and struggled daily to never relive.
