I'm a NYC fag, just moved here cause I got offered a good job from the company I intern'd for. Giving them a couple years of experience then getting the hell out. It's awful as a car enthusiast. Luckily I like the NYC life outside of the automotive aspect so I'm not as miserable as I could be.
I had my '11 mustang GT here with me the first couple months and instantly realized how much I was risking with the cramped super busy street (I live in a pretty standard tiny ass apartment with on street parking less than 10 blocks from times square). Then just driving anywhere with hours of stop and go with the 6speed is just awful.
I took it back to Ohio and left it at my parents within the first couple months living here. I bought a $700 96 auto corolla just for the rare times I do need to leave the city. I dont mind it as much but it's completely worthless having anything nice/enthusiast level if you live in NYC.
