Wow.  Robin Williams once quipped that cocaine is God's way of telling you that you make too much money -- this has to be right up there with cocaine.

Meh. It's NYC. Where it is trendy to blow money. Image is everything. I'm happy for the entrepreneur in that article.

Good for her for finding a unique business that has a need, but it is so sad that we need all of that, this is NYC, don't they walk everywhere? JK I know that isn't enough for everyone.

For some people, money matters little. The article mentions Denzel Washington's wife who uses it, and I can imagine that they have the money. I would normally find this concept appalling, except that it isn't intended to be for the 99% of the population. It's a service that's geared towards affluent. I will say that I think that this idea is silly.
