14 cons of New York and 5 things for which these disadvantages can endure
This does not write in the guidebooks. Entertaining American Andy impressions of life in the "Big Apple." Note to everyone who dreams of New York!
1. Shaking lifts
It does not matter whether you go down to the New York subway, or climb into the apartment of your friend in the 30s building dating back years - lifts in New York are shaking, as in your nightmare. Whenever you enter them, you are playing Russian Roulette (Russian, by the way, also sometimes included). So carefully study the other passengers. Who among them can be the weakest link? Can anyone of them prove to be useful? It is likely that in the next 48 hours, these people will become your family.
2. Dear salads
In this city, we do our best to stay in shape. We have already put up with high priced gym membership, but the idea to throw out $ 10 for a handful of lettuce and a couple of cherry tomatoes, is beyond our comprehension. So usually it ends up that same amount of money we pay for something bigger and posytnee. Everything went to hell - I chose a slice of pizza.
3. Train Delays
It does not matter how well you plan your time and how much prepared for the worst - sometimes failures in train movements can fully get you out of yourself. Technical work on the weekend - it is quite annoying, but these days you have, at least, can not in a hurry. But on other days, when the failures and then fall on the peak hours or at a time when you schedule a meeting, New Yorkers have to pretty tight.
4. Unequal income
On this infogramme as skyscrapers demonstrated the difference in salaries in the territory of Manhattan.
Remember: everything in this town have the same plans as you. Are you trying to have dinner somewhere nearby, or go to a free concert - all New Yorkers are going to do the same thing at the same moment. They say New Yorkers hate to stand in queues, but in reality this is far from the truth. In fact, New Yorkers have long been accustomed to queues and turned them into a tribute to traditions.
6. The rats
... Rats !!!
If you are lucky (or, on the contrary, are out of luck) enjoy the car, then most likely, you spend a quarter of life in thinking on the subject of where you park it. If your yard you will find a good parking spot, it can be a cause the whole next week to stay at home.
congestion in rush hour - it is certainly bad, but at least understandable. But where can take the cork in the morning - is another question. Even if you do and do not have my car, you still know the feeling of irritation that you experience while sitting, for example, in a taxi, and watching the pedestrians cross the road slowly, while you wait out the next red light.
9. Prices Cinema
14 dollars 75 cents per person - no small sum. For this money you can find a half months of views on Netflix (Netflix - a web portal for eight dollars per month with a legal view an unlimited number of films - approx interpreter.). And wherever these bloggers, commentators take the money, all the time watching news cinema? 10. Noise
In the New York you may not realize how noisy the city, but it is worth it to you to leave - and you finally rasslyshit the beat of his heart or even the growth of their nails. In this case, you risk a panic attack because of the uncanny silence.
11. Social rivalry
One of the problems of New York life - that's what everyone there will tell you something better than you. What a great party on the roof you have visited or someone you know has been definitely on the other, with a much better view. I once had a chance to see Stephen Baldwin at the airport, but it cost me to share it with friends, I was overpowered story about the dinner in the company of other Baldwin - Alec!
12. FOMO (fear of missing out) - the fear that any miss
In this city, there is so much that every time you check something on your phone, sleeping or relaxing in their tiny apartment, you are bound to miss something magnificent, amazing, or at least worthy Instragramma. It is likely that you are missing something now.
13. The smell of
This is a common complaint, but not do without it. Sometimes, for unknown reasons, your nose will get the stench so acrid and so unbearable that you will be hard to believe that its source has arisen on this planet.
14. In all there are the dogs. Everywhere lying shit
... The worst thing about this is that the two do not always offer the top there is a connection.
And 5 things for which all this can be patient
Despite the fact that New York is very expensive, there are plenty of free entertainment - from concerts and film screenings to museums and parks. They say that the best things in life should be free, and while prices in Krispy Kreme grow and grow around is a lot of things for which you do not have to climb into his wallet.
2 all Here live
... well, okay, a little more human lives in Los Angeles, where a handful of people - in China, but most of the people, which would you like to see in person, it is in New York.
3. Here you can get an unforgettable experience
... Once on the train, I watched as 60tiletny old man in a leather jacket, leather pants and a leather dog collar Italian family explained how to get to Houston Street, using only one sign language.
4. New York - is a giant melting pot
In the conventional train from here you can get an authentic experience culture from all over the world. New York - this is probably the most bitty place on the planet, and every day you will meet here people come from cities and countries, of which you have not even heard of.
5. Here, hell, indescribably beautiful
From this fact can not escape. Everywhere you look - totally gorgeous views around, and amid them, and you feel small and big at the same time.
