"The IRT 7 Train of the NYC Subway system serves as the conduit that connects many ethnically diverse neighborhoods in northwest Queens to the heart of Manhattan. While I've been living along the 'International Express' for years, I am still constantly awed by the complexity of the communities formed alongside it, as well as the harmonious coexistence of so many people of distinct ethnic backgrounds."—Jeff Chien-Hsing Liao
