    IMO the main issue is that our country spends all its money on the military and the rich and we don't take care of our infrastructure. That's why our roads are in pieces, our bridges are collapsing and other things like this happen.
    This country is so dirty and broken.

    We really need private subway lines. Subway in the Bay Area, San Paulo, London are all also ancient and deficient. New York definitely took the trophy home though. PS: by private I am not only saying leasing, although that's an upgrade, I am saying letting companies build and operate new lines with minimal red tape.

    The solution is actually very simple, its what other cities around the world do. The subway has to close down from between 1am and 4-5am every week day, continue to be open 24 hours on weekends, but week days it has to be cleaned and fixed. Train systems in Paris, London, Berlin, Barcelona, etc etc ALL do this, their trains are also cleaned, their stations are always updated and new and there are a lot less accidents because for 4 hours everyday things can be fixed. New york is literally at risk of mutliple stations collapsing into themselves, just imagine that happening during rush hour
