It's pretty good, but it's not great. It's not even in the top 10. People drive in NYC because it's (still) more convenient than transit. People who have near-door-to-door transit opportunities don't drive much; everyone else? Even in Manhattan, the whole east side is a wasteland of transit. Look at Queens: it might as well be Kansas City out there.

You whistled this tune when you lived in Manhattan and worked downtown; now that you live in Brooklyn, you have a car.
