I was very impressed with Toronto's underground when I visited in the 80s. I have not been back since, so I can't vouch for what it's like now; but at the time it was way ahead of Philadelphia's Suburban Station. And I'd say even after the massive improvements in Suburban Station (where I spent a lot of time waiting for trains before those improvements were made), the Toronto one stands out in my mind as more impressive. I think it went on for longer, for one thing.

Edit: ah, yeah, doing a search I find:

According to Guinness World Records, PATH is the largest underground shopping complex with 30 km (19 miles) of shopping arcades. It has 371,600 square metres (4 million square feet) of retail space. In fact, the retail space connected to PATH rivals the West Edmonton Mall in size.

In North America, it is Montreal first and followed by Toronto.

Chicago isn't bad either between the pedway and the connection of amenities like Thompson Center, Macys and Block 37 (108 N. State st) cleanliness is another story.
