This card comes from Gabby who lives in NYC. 🙂 The NYC subway is so terribly complex, with so many lines and stations, that it would be impossible to fit on a single postcard. So I guess I’ll have to collect the different boroughs one by one. 😀

The New York City Subway is a rapid transit system owned by the City of New York. It is the most extensive public transportation system in the world by number of stations, with 468 stations in operation (421, if stations connected by transfers are counted as single stations).

In 2012, the subway delivered over 1.65 billion rides. By annual ridership, the New York City Subway is the busiest rapid transit rail system in the United States and in the Americas, as well as the seventh busiest rapid transit rail system in the world.
