To really know what makes a great city work, we have to peel racket skin and expose its secret lives, system of incrediable complexity and technology that millions depend on, but few understand. The fantastic voyage now begins, a journey deep inside world's megacities. They call it The Big Apple, the largest metropolace in America.
8 million people scatter to cross the five borrows, each a city in itself. The call of the Big Apple, the Buslin Borral of Mahanttan. Like no place on earth, New York is famed for its pace. Yet life here would slow to a cruel without 1 vital piece of infrustructure, perhaps, the most famous trasportation system in the world - the New York subway.
It's 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. Yep, the subway is a system under seige, daily it faces a triple threat from man, from nature, and from time, count the parrows and mind the reals.
2 3rs of the subway runs underground, under roads, under rivers, under skycripers. The system truely carries the weight of the city on its shoulders. Billions of tons of concret and steel has falled to earth, all buring down. Millions of leeters of water threatening to flood in. A hundred year euro nexwork struggling to keep up at the most ominous number of all - 911. In these dark shuttles the spector of terrorism is no illusion. It's a nightmare New York survived and struggles daily to never relive.
