1. We can ride between 4 boroughs for next to nothing.
While the price of the Metrocard has risen, it is still amazing that we can get from the Bronx to the bottom of Queens or from Manhattan out to Coney Island all for $2.75.
2. It’s easy to not see someone ever again.
With a city of over 8 million people, and the entire state’s population at almost 20 million, you can pretty much avoid anyone you want to never see again. Take it from experience of trying to get exes off my radar or not see that annoying neighbor. Oh wait, I don’t even know who most of my neighbors are.
