New York City is trying to kill you.
There’s no doubt that New York is a special place like no other, but with that comes some unavoidable dangers that the city’s 8.5 million residents must endure on a daily basis like some sort of urban obstacle course.
From falling air conditioners to falling down subway stairs, the city presents a few challenges, and New Yorkers are increasingly aware and terrified of every single one of them.
1. Falling through a cellar door that’s in the sidewalk.
2. Getting pushed onto the subway tracks by a total stranger.
