在伦敦,地铁叫做Tube,在巴黎,地铁叫做Metro,而在纽约是,地铁就叫做 subway。在19041027日星期四的午后,纽约市市长乔治.麦克克雷栏 (George B. McClellan) 正式启动了纽约市的地铁系统。第一班离开市政厅站的地铁列车由市长负责操作,并且在26分钟之后抵达145街的出口。地铁于当天晚上7点钟对外开放,那天晚上在地铁停止营运之前,共有15万名乘客搭乘了这列车在地底隧道里穿梭着。

In London, it's "the Tube"; in Paris, it's the Metro; and in New York City, it's the subway. On Thursday afternoon, October 27, 1904, the mayor of New York City, George B. McClellan, officially opened the New York City subway system. The first subway train left City Hall station with the mayor at the controls, and 26 minutes later arrived at 145th Street. The subway opened to the general public at 7 p.m. that evening, and before the night was over, 150,000 passengers had ridden the trains through the underground tunnels.
