722 Miles

The Building of the Subways and How They Transformed New York

By Clifton Hood

  722 Miles

Clifton Hood traces the complex and fascinating history of the New York City subway system in this 352-page, 6 x 9 1/4" paperback with 36 illustrations and five maps. At its opening in 1904, the tracks covered 22 miles from City Hall to 145th Street and Lenox Avenue, the longest stretch ever built at one time. From that initial route through the completion of the Independent Subway in the 1940s, the subway grew to cover 722 miles.
