The transportation system of New York City. Subway, bus, descriptions itineraries, routes.    
The City of New York is the most marvelous exemplification of those traits of the American people which have made the United States of to-day. Interest in New York does not lie in the mere magnitude of the city, but is found rather in the bound-less enterprise, the bold conception and the amazing achievement, which have reared the mighty fabric of the Metropolis. The theme is one which might well challenge the pen of him who would celebrate the America of the beginning of the Twentieth Century.


  • The Subway The Subway is rectangular, being 25 feet wide for the two-track sections, 50 feet wide for the four-track sections, and 13 feet high through-out. It has a concrete bed and a steel frame construction.
  • Tunnels The Manhattan-Brooklyn Tunnel is an extension of the Rapid Transit Railroad subway system under the East River to the foot of Joralemon street; thence to Fulton street and Flatbush avenue and to the junction of Flatbush and Atlantic avenues, where is the station of the Long Island Railroad.
