Newyork city 1
To really know what makes a great city work, You have to peel剥落 back at skin, and expose secret life force, A system of incredible complexity and technology, the millions depend on but few understand. A fantastic voyage now begins—— A journey deep inside the world’s mega cities. They call it the big apple, the largest metropolis in America.
8 million people scattered across 5 boroughs, each a city in itself. The core of the big apple, the bustling 熙熙攘攘的 borough 自治区、市镇of Manhattan. Like no place on earth, New York is famed for以什么出名 its pace, yet life here would slow to crawl without one vital piece of infrastructure.基础设施建造 perhaps, the most famous transportation system in the world——the new York subway.
It’s the engine that drive this megacity. 75% of new Yorkers have no car. They don’t need one. New York has the best transit system in America. Yet the subway is a system under siege被包围. Daily it faces a triple threat, from man, from nature and from time. Count the perils 危险and mind reels  心惊肉跳.
2/3 of the subway runs undergrounds, under roads, under rivers, under skyscrapers. The system truly carries thy weight of the city on its shoulders. Billions of tons of concrete and steel, asphalt柏油 and earth all bearing down. 下坠Millions of litters of water threatening to flood in. A hundred year old network struggling to keep up and the most ominous不吉利的 number of all, 911.
In these dark shadows, the specter 恐怖of terrorism is no illusion幻觉. It’s a nightmare, new Yorkers survived, and struggles daily to never relieve.
love life, love English.
