I caught this in a CNN video about some of the storm damage that hurricane Sandy wreaked on the New York City subways system. Apparently the entire system is 108 years old. Not only is it 108 years old, but at apx 1:30 in the video the reporter mentions that the subway system had it’s 108th birthday on Saturday, just one day before Sandy hit.
