[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 its secret lives, systems of incredible complexity and technology. Millions depend on but few understand. Fantastic voyage now begins. The journey deep inside the worlds megacity. They call it the big apple---the largest metropolis in America.
Eight million people scatter across five boroughs . Each a city in itself. The core of big apple, the bustling bar of Manhattan. Like no place on earth, New York is famed for its pace. Yet life here was slow to a crawl without one vital pieceful infrastrcture. Perhaps the most faous transportation in the world--the New York subway.
It is the engine that drives the mega city. 75% New Yorkers have no car. They don't need one. New York has the best transit system in America. The subway is a system under seige, daily faces triple threat, from man and from time. Count perils and mind reels. Two thirds the subways runs under ground, under roads, under rivers, under skyscrappers. The system truely carries the weight of city of its shoulders. Billions of tons of concret and steel______or burrying down. Millions of litters of water threatening to flood in. A hundred year old network struggling to keep up and the most ominous number of all 911. In these dark shadows, the specter of terrorism is no illusion. It's a nightmare New York survived and struggles daily to never relieve.
