Nothing is easy in New York City. Instead of jumping in your car, you wait an hour for a delayed C Train. Instead of taking out a mortgage, working to own your own place, you begin each year wondering whether you'll be priced out of your current neighborhood and the next neighborhood over. Just finding a place to use the bathroom can be a herculean task.
