New York City is trying to kill you.

There’s no doubt that New York is a special place like no other, but with that comes some unavoidable dangers that the city’s 8.5 million residents must endure on a daily basis like some sort of urban obstacle course.

From falling air conditioners to falling down subway stairs, the city presents a few challenges, and New Yorkers are increasingly aware and terrified of every single one of them.

1. Falling through a cellar door that’s in the sidewalk.

2. Getting pushed onto the subway tracks by a total stranger.

3. Accidentally falling onto the subway tracks.

4. Getting dripped on by some strange liquid. Keep telling yourself it’s just water.
