Amazon.com has agreed to pull ads from New York City's subway system for a new television show featuring Nazi-inspired imagery, a transit official said Tuesday, hours after Mayor Bill de Blasio called on the company to do so.

The advertisements for "The Man in the High Castle" completely wrap the seats, walls and ceilings of one train on the heavily utilized shuttle line that connects Times Square and Grand Central Terminal in midtown Manhattan.
