What can I say about NY? It definitely has the most rail-based transit in all of the Americas! It is one of the largest sections on this website. I may live the Pacific Northwest, but I am partial to the NY, particularly Brooklyn (my native habitat). The NY subways alone are a transit fans dream. Add the commuter trains and NJ light rail systems in Jersey Cityand Newark, the metro area becomes a transit fan’s heaven. I have broken the New York area based on operations.
