Patton Oswalt: The Horror of New York City

Mon 11.04.13 – I am one of those people who likes my cities a bit spread out and , like London, Istanbul, Mumbai, and Los Angeles. While I have visited New York City four or five times in my life, I have almost always wanted OUT of this city by half a day or less*.
