[Homework]【整理】2012-01-30 超级城市纽约 NewYork—1

HW
To really know what makes  a great city work , you have to peel back its skin , expose in secret life force , a system of incredible complexity and technology , the millions depend on but few understand . The fantastic vayage 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 a city itself . The core of the big apple , the bustling barrel 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 have the best transit system in America , yet the subway is a system undersitch . Daily it faces a ttriplr threat ,from man , from nature ,and from time ,compol parrels and mine reels.
Two thirds of the subway runs underground , under roads , under rivers , under skyscrapers . The system truly carries the weight of the city on its shoulders . Billions of tonnes of concrete and steel , export and earth or bury 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 911 . In this dark shadows , the spector of terrorism is no illusion . It's a nightmare New York survived and struggles daily to never relives .
