It is almost impossible to imagine New York without its subway. The subway is now more than 100 years old– but to tell the story of how the city developed a mighty transit system, you need to begin a few decades earlier. We start our tour in 1864 during the Civil War. At each stop along the way we move forward in time, visiting some long-forgotten places that shaped this city. This is a tour of imagination that will take you back to the 1800s. This Sploro audio walking tour will be your time machine, helping you to imagine a world beneath our feet.
