I love the subways of New York and the fact that by riding them, you do not have to face the impossible task of dodging pedestrians and taxicabs, limos and buses, or those poor fools who think they can drive in downtown Manhattan. The intricate schedules, with trains arriving and departing every few minutes throughout the day and the extensive maze of underground tunnels and lines that criss-cross, one on top of the other, is mind-boggling! Now, I understand why so many New Yorkers do not own cars....with the subway, there really is no need.
