“New Yorkers are proud, even boastful, about the city’s diversity, and in this study we seek to know more about the actual experiences of diversity as it occurs in daily life, primarily on one subway line, the 7 train. We look at how social diversity affects the riders and the functioning of the system itself.” — Stéphane Tonnelat and William Kornblum
