The State of the Union 2016: Watch the Live Stream and Republican Response Webcast a€“ What will President Obama cover in his final address to the nation? A New York City subway train enters the Coney Island station prior to a total subway shutdown at 7pm in New York, October 28, 2012.
New York City is slowly starting to move again following Hurricane Sandy's impact on the largest city in the US. The storm has led to floods in subway lines causing suspensions for every train under the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA). On Tuesday evening, the MTA announced limited bus service to resume and has reverted to a regular schedule for most of the five boroughs but with heavy and long lines. Relief may soon come as the MTA confirmed several subway lines will resume, however, not to full capacity.
The recent post “The blessings of a Navigo card” by Philippa Campsie at the blog Parisian Fields comparing Paris and Toronto public transportation got me thinking about mass transit in the big cities that I have lived in. Back in Northern California, while it may work fine within San Francisco, in Silicon Valley, public transportation is, ahem, inefficient. Now public transportation in New York and Paris isn’t perfect, and it might be smelly, but it works and all kinds of people use it every day.

While the system is now run by the Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA), an independent governmental agency, its construction began under two private companies, the Interborough Rapid Transit Company (IRT) and the Brooklyn Rapid Transit Company (later the Brooklyn-Manhattan Transit Corporation, or BMT).
Although the two private companies needed to collaborate with the city in order to build their tunnels, they were able to do so rapidly and decisively, especially as compared to the MTA and its governmental forebears.
However, as the animation continues, the drawbacks of a lack of central planning become apparent.
The city attempted to rectify these problems early on, creating its own company, the Independent Subway System (IND) and opening its first line in 1932.

The animation shows the efficiency with which private companies can operate, especially when today’s sluggish system growth is taken into account.
EDT - Under New York Governor Andrew Cuomo's orders, all MTA fares - from subway, buses, Metro-North, and Long Island Rail Road - will be waived thru Friday.
Runs in Brooklyn from Flatbush Avenue and Brooklyn College to Atlantic Avenue and Barclays Center.
Also, the A train will run between Jay Street in Brooklyn to Ozone Park and Lefferts Boulevard in Queen.
When I was getting my masters at NYU, I would walk down my block in Cobble Hill, Brooklyn to the Carroll Street stop and take the F train into Manhattan to West 4th street. My husband is able to take the light rail to work because we live near downtown Campbell and he works in downtown San Jose, but as I am writing this he has just texted me to say that he will be home late (again) because the train isn’t coming. As Silicon Valley grows (as it is doing exponentially), we are going to need reliable, efficient public transportation.
The duo competed to construct the underground tunnels still in use today, and link them to elevated and street-level tracks in the outer boroughs. The piecemeal nature of the subway’s expansion is especially evident in the animation, as the IRT and BMT quickly cobbled together existing rights-of-way in the outer boroughs. Lower Manhattan, where the first underground train began service, becomes almost overburdened with lines. However, the Depression cut short plans for the second system that the IND hoped to develop, and in 1940, the IRT, BMT, and IND were unified under city control, leading to the centralized system New York has today. Now that she's finally learned to drive, she's trying to master the other skills she missed out on by growing up in New York City: swimming, shooting, and horseback riding. I still remember hauling my computer and notebooks up the never-ending flights of stairs at that stop to finally reach the outside world. We started out living in Amelie‘s slanted, green-hued and slightly magical 18th arrondissement, home of Sacre Coeur, the beautiful gigantic white church on top of the hill.
At this point, I would walk to la Gare du nord to take the purple ligne 4 to the sketchy Porte de Clignancourt.

Those same lines never reach entire swaths of the city, isolating thousands of people and worsening New York’s dismal traffic. After graduating, I would take the F up to 42nd street Bryant Park and walk through the Garment District, passing by the imposing New York Times building on my way to work for France Today magazine (now located in the UK). Our neighborhood was connected to the rest of the snailshell that is la ville lumiere by la ligne 12, which is a deep forest green. Eventually I ended the relationship with the woman I was tutoring because a) it was a dodgy neighborhood and b) she was a rather snooty francaise. A year later, I rode it all the way up to it’s second to last stop in Manhattan, 57th street. Our stop was Jules Joffrin, across from the city hall of our arrondissement and a friendly neighborhood bistro where we would stop for un demi (a beer) from time to time.
No matter, as it gave me more time to take other metro lines to do more interesting things throughout the city, like visit museums and go to cafes with friends. I would walk down 5th avenue past the luxury brands on my way to the office of the French skincare company who was my last New York employer before moving with my new husband to Paris.
To get to work, my husband took this line to the terminus (Porte de la Chapelle) where he would be greeted by prostitutes while crossing le peripherique into Aubervilliers to get to work.
The only good thing about taking the train so far north was that on the way back I had my pick of seats to plop down in and then get lost in my New York Magazine all the way home. Many offices are located here in order to take advantage of the cheaper rent as compared to renting inside the city boundaries.
