5 That Are Considered Luxury only in NYC (3)

“…Neeeeew Yoooork Concrete Jungle Where Dreams Are Made Of, There’s Nothing You Can’t Do…” Except find parking.  Although I love this city some things here are considered “high living” when it is standard in other U.S. Cities.  Nu Yawkahs it is time to laugh at ourselves as we look at all the things we don’t have. Here are 5 Things That Are Considered Luxury, Only In NYC.

1) Dishwashers

I have never used a dishwasher in my life. I wouldn’t even know where to begin. Back in my day in The Bronx we had a different word for this magical appliance. It was called siblings.


2) A Driver’s License

Thankfully I lived in Connecticut during my teen years so I could obtain this elusive scroll by unlocking Narnia and slaying the forbidden dragon known as a road test.


3) A Pantry

I visited my friend once a I saw she has a pantry and I haven’t been back to her house since. I don’t have time to be jealous.


4) A Backyard

Ahhh, something else on this list I actually have.  It came a long way but it is glorious now. Yes Lawd werk!


5) Linen Closet

My neighbor has one of these and I hate him too.



New Yorkers do you have any of these?  What are some things you wish you had that other cities take for granted?
