Jaywalking has always been a way of life in NYC. I often marvel at how many people will still wait on the curb when the light is red but there is no traffic coming. Cross in the middle of the block? Why not, if no ones coming and you need to get to the other side? How am I supposed to know which side of the street the address I'm going to is on. You expect me to walk all way down to the corner and back again? Get real.
