This page is all about the history of the NYC subway system. From the planning stages of the first subway to details of it's construction- the first subway line opened to passengers on 1904 and on its first day of operations, the system carried more than 150,000 passengers! There's also a lot of fun history about subway stations, subway safety, and even subway crime.
