'Nobody Walks In L.A.' And Nobody Drives In N.Y.C.
"New York City has more able-bodied, non-licensed, car-phobic adults than anywhere in the United States... New Yorkers plan work and play around their inability to drive. They vacation on Fire Island, because no cars are allowed. They tend to travel east to London, Paris or any other European city with a good subway system instead of heading west, say, to Utah or Wyoming or Nevada, all of which have long highways and no Yellow Taxis."
