Subways in New York

I admire the great achievements New Yorkers created in New York. After I studied New York History at http://www.nycsubway.org/, I learnt that the majority of the New York Subway system was completed between 1904 and 1918. With this background information, the current subway seems so advanced and clean. The lines 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 9, A, B, C, D, E, S, N, Q, R, W, V, L connects the suburbs and Manhattan and make it so convenient.

The signs (color, font, Exit..) are great. It makes the navigation very clear. I was so amused when I found the sign plate was collected by MoMA as Modern Art. Along with the MTA sign, iMac was also along the exhibition.

One thought on “Subways in New York

    The suburbs are not connected by subways. These are sort of burbs but these are still part of new york. The burbs are in Long Island (Nassau, Suffolk) New Jersey, Westchester County, & Southwest Connecticut. These places ae connected by other transit systems such as LIRR for Long Island, NJTRANSIT for New Jersey, & Metro North for Westchester, & Connecticut. These places are still okay places because I live in Queens next to 3 subway stations maybe 4 or 5.
