The New York subway was opened to the public last week. The system, when fully completed, will consist of twenty-six miles of underground tracks, elevated structures, and viaducts, over which will run express trains at nearly a mile a minute, reaching to the city's northern and southern limits, and, diving under the East River, making the extreme eastern skirts of Brooklyn as accessible to the business districts as the heights of Harlem. It is estimated that over this vast system, and those of the Metropolitan Street Railway Company and the Manhattan Elevated Company, will pass annually more than 900,000,000 passengers. The total expenditure on New York subways will, it is estimated, amount to about $205,000,000.
