This is television’s most thorough and comprehensive history of New York City’s mass transit. I’m glad they avoided using personal histories and interviews and just kept it as a narrative to keep it chock full of facts. Love the narrator’s grandfatherly, yarn-spinning voice. This really does make all the other subway documentaries look slow & plodding or just immature. Way better than that Extreme Engineering episode.
