Those Stockholm stations look very interesting...I hope use their system one day.

My (very short) list (no order):

New York (Worst experience)
- Dirty, stinky
- large, heavily used
- Pretty much what you'd expect from America's largest city
- In the summer some of the stations get real hot and muggy
Chicago (Least Remembered Experience)
- The only thing I can remember is that it took us quite a bit of time to travel a short distance
Vancouver (Cleanest Experience)
- Very short underground section
- By far the cleanest system
- Spectacular views of the city
- Would like to see it connect to Richmond and UBC
Toronto (Most Recent Experience)
- Heavily used
- good frequencies (even on the weekends)
- I really hope they continue to expand the subway
London (Best Experience)
- I absolutely ADORE the "tube"
- Excellent coverage
- Great frequencies
- Mix of modern and classic
- Very easy to use (for me at least)

Unfortunately, on most of my travels I was limited to getting around by car.

New York
Jersey City (PATH)
Hoboken (PATH - ok, that was a long shot - it's only one station and its just past the border of Jersey City)

Not so impressive is it? I have to travel more.

Amsterdam - relatively small system, but easy and convenient in use;
Rotterdam - more impressive than the Amsterdam system, with a REAL underground transfer station (Amsterdam will have one soon);
London - really old, really claustrophobic, really vast, really cool!;
New York - stations are still in decrepit state, but the trains are aircoed! Kewl...!;
Paris - my first underground experience. I particularly like line 6, with its rubber tyres, overground sections and splendid view towards the Tour Eiffel;
Prague - clean, deep, efficient, communist...;
Berlin - surprisingly large network with some beautiful stations and wooden interior cars;
Vienna - my last new underground experience so far. Not much of a special system though, although traveling line 6 (hmmm..coincidence?), which is mainly overground and runs on an old elevated structure is recommendable.

Umm...London's oldest underground section is 142 years old and still looks fine. So that's no excuse.
The NY system has been largely neglected after WWII, and well, this is what you got in return. Too bad, but fortunately, there are some great plans to re-modernize the entire system and finally build some significant amount of new lines! (#7 extension and the Second Avenue Subway).

I've used 60 systems so far (including some metro tram systems). Long before this thread, I've put them on this webpage with a few comments: http://mic-ro.com/metro/visited.html
