No. 13

Because on New Year's Eve car services close instead of adding more drivers to meet the demand for taxis.

No. 12

Because I found a cockroach under my pillow and another fell from the towel I wiped my mouth on after brushing my teeth.

No. 11

Because of These Guys. 

- This video submission comes from Natalie Stein in Willimasburg, Brooklyn.

No. 10

Because to get all the ingredients for one dinner you have to visit 3 different neighborhood organic natural delis and one old-fashioned bodega.

If this were a town outside of Paris I would have no complaints having to visit la boulangerie, la charcuterie, la patisserie and la fromagerie because those shops have fundamental differences, like completely different products.

The former mentioned four stores are essentially conjoined quadruplets whose mom is two blocks of Brooklyn.

No. 9

Because a bagel store can be out of everything bagels at 11am on a Sunday.

No. 8

Because when you finally think New York is giving you the break of a lifetime, a Saturday morning parking space in front of the cheap fruit store, the guy driving behind you sees your u-turn and pulls one too. Then you have to wait and watch him parallel park, without grace, into your spot before you can keep looking for another one.

No. 7

Because New York magazine's "Reasons to Love New York Right Now" is not convincing.

- a sauna and bar combination sounds like a whole lot of shared bacteria and awkward skin-to-skin flirting. #49
- the trash and the drug deals are in plain view.
- someone's favorite memory of Washington Square Park is, "Ratball!" #58
