'Only In New York' Gets The Twitter Treatment (PHOTOS)

Walking down the street, riding the subway, at the grocery store, in a cab--sometimes something so random, extraordinary, disgusting or beautiful happens here that all you can do is shake your head and say, "Only in New York."

According to WhatTheTrend, someone in the Twittosphere created the #onlyinnewyork hashtag about nine months ago and ever since a steady stream of New Yorkers have been sharing their Big Apple stories in 140 characters or less.

Many of the tweets deal with the city's bizarre characters, some complain about how expensive it is here, while others just express their complicated love for this wild place.

Here are 15 #onlyinnewyork tweets from the past couple weeks that we liked. Have an "Only in New York" moment of your own? Share it in the comments below (or tweet it!).
