29 Things That Enrage New Yorkers

27. Apartments with nasty kitchens including those old timey stoves/ovens.

28. Restaurant menus littering my apartment building hallways.

29. That hour or so each afternoon when there are no taxis, anywhere. (Uber was made for this)

New Yorkers, what drives you mad about our mostly-awesome city?
