Movie Reviews

An hour of fascinating history
Janna Silverstein | Seattle, WA USA | 03/01/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This hour-long episode of "American Experience" documents the planning and building of New York City's first subway route. With wonderful film clips, photographs, and illustrations from the era, along with commentary from authors and historians, it tells the story, first, of the original two-block-long experimental pneumatic tube railway, and then of the massive, four-year construction project that became the IRT, one of the world's earliest--and certainly the longest--electric subways. Including profiles of the men who made it happen and providing wonderful period details, this documentary offers a glimpse into a different time at a pleasant, bite-sized length for armchair historians. Recommended."
