Granted it's hard to beat NYC. As Wired pointed out awhile back: "It's got 468 stations, 842 miles of track and twice as many daily riders (5 million) as every other rapid-transit system in the United States combined." That said, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Paris, & London are all pretty darn impressive. Check them, and several others, out here.
And as good as these subways are, Crooked Brains has a post on Subway Stations that could be even better. Check it out!
Back in June, I posted an idea (or rather two) on how to improve the NYC Subways. I still haven't found the MTA suggestion box, but I do have a NYC Subway Improvement Idea for July. This time it's just a borrowed idea from my travels.
We have been anticipating our trip to the abandoned City Hall subway station for a couple of months now. We are going today! There's a nice write up on the stop at Forgotten NY. Can't wait! You have to join the Subway Museum to go.
You'd think people would recognize that when there is a swarm of people coming up the subway stairs, it means that a train has recently arrived. Which also usually means that same train has left the station, so there is no reason for them to go down the stairs until everyone else has exited. But the people don't seem to realize this and it just isn't going to happen.
