Daily Commute ain't that bad for the most part. It's tough sometimes and like 1.5 hours to get to the city, but it's not that bad.
I know Long Island folks suffer though, especially living deep in LI, like 3-4 hours away from the city.
1.5 hours isn't that bad for us but for the rest of country that's terrible. I used to live upstate and average commute was 15 minutes max. people in the NYC metro don't have a normal sense of what a drive to work should be like, everyone is desensitized to a 90 minute commute
