Hey, Kramer isn't always around to drive Jerry and the gang to the mall and the Hamptons Jitney can get a little too close for comfort during the humid months. The free parking comes in awfully handy on both sides of Central Park, but even folks in Williamsburg like to cut out to places they can't reach via Grand Central or Penn Station every so often. If nothing else, a quick jaunt through the tunnels and over the bridges and the steep toll drivers have to pay on the way back should be an excellent annual reminder of why you ditched your car when you moved to the city in the first place.
