    NY seems brilliant according to this thread, compared to Tokyo.

    road tolls in Tokyo:

    about $12 to enter the Tokyo-Yokohama wangan (it's like 7 miles or something)

    Rent:

    1 room (i say 1 room as literally, one room, something ridiculous like 100sq ft) starts at about 1200USD in the city, maybe $6-800 in the sticks. Getting walled off rooms is straight luxury, you might pay $3000+ for that, and move up to 3-400 sq ft.

    Food is cheap, but cheap food is crappy. Expensive food is expensive.

    Girls:

    Can find a fuckable specimen everytime you go to the convenience to buy beer and drink away the cost of living sorrows, like me, and they will be 7-8's or above, no fatties, ever. You don't get involved with them because you know it's just going to cost you more money.

    Parking is free and relatively easy to find after 4pm on the UES.

    Hmm, never had that issue. I'm just happy to park for free.

    Those rubber retard bibs on the backs of nice cars in NYC crack me up. Only place I've ever seen them (might've seen them in Chicago too, but Chicago doesn't even exist to me), they might as well brand them with Mets and Yankees logos.

    they do look dumb. but I've seen my fair share of bad bumpers to realize their utility - the worst bumpers look like they were blasted with a high powered BB gun for hours. Next time I see one (so next time I walk outside), if I have StyleForvm on my mind, I'll snap a picture for this thread.

    I once got a $60 parking fine for getting back to my muni-meter 1 minute late. I was getting some fish or something. The women was right there writing it up, and when I tried reasoning with her, she didn't even respond. Those parking meter assholes are the scum of the earth.

    They are all over certain neighborhoods in Boston. Really dumb looking.

    Seriously? I've seen many hundreds of them and I've only been to NY for about two weeks in the past year. They are everywhere, I've even seen them on cabs.

    I don't know - maybe the neighborhoods I frequent are not typical "overnight parking areas" but I don't see those around at all. Maybe I'm not noticing them...

    what makes me laugh about those things is that no one has them on the front bumper

    if I ever purchas a car while living in the city (which is extremely doubtful I ever will) and decide that its best to park it in the street (even less likely to happen than me purchasing a car), I'd buy a Range Rover and arm it with those big utility bars on the front and back.

    that should do it.

    I see that all the time but what is the union connection? This is interesting.
