It really is. When I leave New York one of these days, it is one of the things I will miss the most. One can go out and have drinks totally randomly with no advanced planning and have no worries about how to get home.
Also, there is just a broader drinking culture here. Few places outside of New York and the other big cities have such a culture of after-work drinks and boozy brunches. Heck, just the fact that this city gets started later in the morning and eats later a night contributes greatly.
