The key breakfast sandwich, emergency roll of packing tape, cold cut sandwich, or weird old pastry in a clear plastic box is just a trip to the local corner store away when you live in a city. No need to get in a "car" (whatever that is) and drive for miles. Shoot, you don't even need to get dressed to go to a deli. The city deli, like college, is a safe place for pajamas, robes, and experimenting with possibly dangerous meats.
5. You don't need a car And speaking of cars, you don't need one. You can leave the monthly payments, insurance, maintenance, and all the hassle of owning a vehicle to friendly cab drivers, who, for the most part, will sort of take you where you need to go if you actually do need to travel by automobile.
According to the AAA, the average cost of owning a typical Sedan in 2014 is about $740 a month. (sure, that's down from the average of $760 a month last year, but that doesn't support our argument so shut up). That's nearly nine grand a year that you can dedicate to renting a studio apartment with only five to seven roommates in a city. Such a better deal.
