Did you know...
... that today is the birthday of the New York Subway? On
October 27, 1904, the completed New York Subway began operating. At 7 p.m. that evening, the subway opened to the
general public, and more than 100,000 people paid a nickel
each to take their first ride under Manhattan. This subway was
the first underwater and underground rail system in the world.
