New York City is one of the most expensive cities on the planet, and it's totally worth the price! Sure, we have gone to shameless lengths to save money, but we have also splurged on some things that out-of-towners would consider absurd. But, hey, it's a New York thing! Here are some extravagances that cost cosmo girls a penny that's almost as pretty as they are! Have fun justifying these purchases to your parents.
