New York City is famously known as “The City That Never Sleeps.” This title is particularly true for its subway system because it operates around the clock. This iconic network of underground trains all started with City Hall Station in Lower Manhattan. The station was designed by two famous architects: George Heins and Christopher LaFarge. They added elegant features like tile ceilings, chandeliers, and glass skylights to their design. When the subway station made its grand opening in 1904, many people praised it as an amazing piece of engineering.

 紐約市以被稱為「不夜城」而聞名。對其地鐵系統來說這個稱號特別貼切,因為它全天候營運。這個標誌性的地鐵網絡始於曼哈頓下城的市政府站。該站由兩位知名建築師設計:喬治.海因斯及克里斯托弗.拉法基。他們在設計中添加了如瓷磚天花板、枝形吊燈及玻璃天窗等優雅的特色。該地鐵站於 1904 年盛大開幕時,許多人稱讚它是一項令人驚歎的工程。
