Persian Empire in 500 BC
sirprizes: At approximately 8.0 million square kilometers the Persian Empire was the largest empire in the the ancient world. For perspective, the contiguous United States (the lower 48) is 7,663,941.7 square kilometers. Pretty impressive to rule such a vast empire in ancient times in my opinion.

On July 25, 1953, New York City’s subway fare was raised to 15 cents. Instead of making subway riders have three nickels each time, the city introduced the subway token, which became a symbol of the city until it was phased out for the MetroCard in 2003.
