Home Work:
To really know what make a great city work, you have to peel back its skin and expose its secret life force.  System of incredible complexity and technology, the millions depend on and few understand. The fantasitic voyage now begins.  The journery deep inside the world megacity. They call it-- the big apple. the largest metropolis in American.
Eight millions people scatter across the five boroughs, each a city in itself, a core of the big apple, a busling borough 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 transpotation system in the world--the new york subway.
It's the engine that drive this megacity. 75 percent of New Yorkers have no car. They don't need one.  New York has the best transit system in the America. Yet the subway is the system under siege. Daily it faces the triple threats from man, from nature and from time. Count the perils and mind reels.  Two thirds of the subway runs under ground, under roads, under rivers, under skyscrapers. the system turely carries the weight of the city on this shoulders, billions of tons of concrete and the steel, asphalt and earth all bearing down. millions of liters water threatening to flood in. a hundred years old network struggling to keep up. and the most ominous number of all 911 . In this dark shadows,the spector of terrorism is no illusion. It's the nightmare New york survived and struggle daily to ever relieve.
