The NYT def tweaked the photo a bit to make it look even more menacing (desaturate colors, high clarity, etc)... But yes that's probably the worst-looking, disgusting station in the system. I went there once and vowed never to go there again.

NYC’s new subway countdown clocks already have problems

There are loads of the PIDs in London which have the same sort of issues. It will be the signalling and the lack of timing points on the network. It will get better as more points are added or a new signalling system is installed.

We should be aware that half of Chambers Street station is not in use for revenue service.

The New York City subway is the largest rapid transit system in the world.

I tried to model the entire area of Manhattan below Central Park in 3D but turns out the lines are too thin and the changes in elevations look to subtle when you zoom out in a bird's-eye view. So I had to exaggerate the width of the tracks. But after rebuilding the 2D lines in Rhino the lines look so wiggly, so it looks a little weird now. I will try to make a cleaner and neater version!

It's true. ish. It depends on metric, and there's also all sorts of caveats given measurement methods vary form city to city.

https://www.citymetric.com/transport...tem-world-1361

It's fairly safe, however to say NYC Subway has the most stations and the most services - both possible measures of 'large'.

But either way within a decade there are multiple others that will unarguably take over by all metrics? NYC is hanging on only by services and station numbers.

And they have likely had a longer advantage to Chinese systems by the distance of each single track (four tracks of each a kilometer is 4km) compared to normal distance measurements (regardless of number of tracks 1km of subway), the NYC Subway has four tracks on many parts and also uses these pretty much. Maybe NYC still has this particular record but this is rarely ever looked at.

And the number of stations I consider as important as well though: Chinese systems have more ridership because of their catchment areas, but pedestrian access from home is so much better in the Western World as these distances between stations aren't such absurd long. In the Netherlands or Denmark however this is less important as we cycle a lot (despite this, the ring metro of Copenhagen will see short distances and people fear it's effect on bicycle patronage. Newer Amsterdam and Rotterdam lines have slightly longer distances in between them today).

But even if the NYC metro is longer or has more stations, it's entire catchment area is limited by the number of inhabitants in the city proper as it does not extend further beyond. And these Chinese cities proper are bigger, 8 vs 10-15 million. If the densities were higher and NYC had the same number of inhabitants, NYC ridership should be more similar to Chinese cities, not considering all kinds of laws and other modalities.
