that i like about NYC is that i do not have to worry about driving every day. Of course most of the time i hate that i cannot own a car and drive up I5 or 405, but then the everyday thing is somewhat nice. Like today, there is so much snow, suburb roads are mess, but i do not care. I will go home at my usual time by my usual train. kind of nice, especially after driving nightmare in seattle snow. At the same time NY style, I will have to walk for 10 min in super cold weather, and have to stand for another 20 min in dirty crowded train and go back to that silly small apartment with no carpet.
