A. The New York Subway grand opening marks another great advancement in U.S. technology. When this mode of transportation was created on October 27, 1904, it was definitely the most efficient and fasted way to get around. The first line traveled about 9.1 miles through 28 stations. It was the perfect way for any New Yorker to travel from place to place in a short amount of time and without dealing with hectic New York traffic. B. Personally, I think the New York Subway is a great invention. In Michigan, one thing we are lacking is an efficient and inexpensive mode of public transportation. During the cold months of Winter, anyone without a car has a very difficult time getting around. In New York, most residents barely deal with the frigid cold as they have the subway as a solution.

So many passengers ride the subway since it is the most comfortable and efficient mode of transportation in the city. New York would not be the same today without it.
