Sold Out Events

The thing about New York is… even though you are in the center of the music, film and any other industry, so are the other eight million people. New Yorkers don’t get to see Broadway or go to concerts unless they’ve got around $1000 to spare for tickets on Stubhub. Because everything’s sold out. All the time.

No singing

When you live in such a crowded place where the walls are too thin and there’s no chance of you ever driving a car, you cannot sing. Sing above the normal talking volume and your next-door neighbors will hear you, and most probably also want to murder you. Sing in the shower, you’ll get thrown out from the building. Sing outside, and you’re declared crazy.
