Saturday marks the 108th anniversary of the opening of the first underground line of the city's subway system.
The very first line connected City Hall with Harlem.
It ran underneath Park Avenue South to Grand Central, across 42nd Street to Times Square, then up Broadway to 145th Street.
By 1940, two private subway operators had joined the municipally-owned Independent Subway to form the system we know today.
