It has been two months since I arrived New York City, and this reminds me of how I felt very hard when I just got here.
One of the most terrible problems was the subway and train system.
New York is such a busy and large city, so that the subway system always with strong pressure, especially during periods of people going to work and home. Besides, the subway and train system in NYC is so complicated, compared to what I know in China.
Why will I say this? I guess one of the reasons is the length. Taking NYC subway, I can almost go to everywhere, such as Brooklyn, Queens, Flushing, New Jersey and so on. I have to notice that there are three NBA basketball teams in NYC, Brooklyn and New Jersey. NBA locates each of its team according to different cities, except for Los Angles. I think that can show me how large NYC subway and train system is.
Another reason I called the NYC subway system a “city to city” is the different landscapes of each subway station. “Musicians” can seen very often in most of stations. They play music by different kinds of instruments, which I think is very interesting. I know they are playing for their living, and I show my respect to them, but I do think they look so funny when playing instruments in places instruments should not appear.
When there are bad weather and fixing actions, there are always notifications on the official website of MTA:http://www.mta.info/. I think this is a very nice and lovely setting to customers, which cannot be seen in China.
An interesting phenomenon I can see in NYC subway station is that people can always stop the train by blocking the door closing. This kind of action is defined as a extremely dangerous behavior in China and totally banned.
