What would it take to fix the NYC subway system?
Time & Location
About the Event
The 722-mile NYC subway system was once the gold-standard of underground transportation. However, by running 24-hours per day, which provides zero time for maintenance, and using a 100-year-old signal system, things have gone off-track.
With long delays, endless construction, and outdated stations... it's clear that the NYC subway system is in need of a serious overhaul. But before we can move forward, Professor Clifton Hood, author of 722 Miles: The Building of the Subways and How They Transformed New York, will shed light on the history of the subway system, how we got to where we are today, and will share solutions for solving this headache.
