Living in the city can be a trip. You're stressed out, always running late to something, and definitely overpaying for everything from your apartment to your iced coffee. And don't even get us started about the sticky humid rain situations. But, occasionally, and sometimes on your very worst days, the clouds part, the sun seems to shine on only you, and you experience the perfect "only in New York" moment that brightens everything else up - for like five minutes, but still. And if you tried to explain these simple pleasures to anyone not living in New York? They'd probably call you a jaded freak who needs to go on more hikes or something.
