Could you imagine what it would be like if everyone else in big cities felt the same way as you? You'd be stuck in traffic for A LOT longer!
Obviously driving everywhere in NYC is not practical. I live 20 minutes friom the city and have drived in countless times. I know.

Hence why some people live in the big cities and others would rather gnaw their own arm off.

Public transportation is just about the most overrated thing on God's green Earth.
um not if you live in most parts of NYC, or other cities that rely on public transportation, its like saying owning a car in Phoenix Arizona is overrated.

Perhaps you should read my previous post?...

It's a lifestyle decision.

I live in Phoenix: Forgotten how to drive a car (train), don't really shop at grocery stores (farmers market, delis, carnicerias, etc), art walks, eat out too much, late night movies, stay out too late many nights, and walk more than suburbanites for daily living/necessities.
