"What began a century ago with one 22-mile line between City Hall and the then-bucolic Bronx has grown into a maze of 27 routes that reach into four of the city's five boroughs, a total of nearly 700 miles — about the distance to Chicago."

USA Today reviews several new books that mark the centennial.

"Two words you don't often hear together are in the title of Subway Style. This album displaying 100 years of architecture and design in the New York City Subway was compiled by the New York Transit Museum and features photographs by Andrew Garn."
