The NYC Transit Subway System serves 1.6 billion riders annually and consists of 660 miles in train tracks.

Above is a view from the Number 7 Train in Long Island City, an above-ground station in the borough of Queens.

The Number 7 Train's stations include New York's famous Times Square, Citi Field (home of Major League Baseball's New York Mets), Arthur Ashe Stadium (home of Tennis's US Open) and The LIC Rail Yards (known as 'The Ashes' in the famous novel, The Great Gatsby).
