Oh man yes.  I was on a business trip in New York City last
week, needed to pull over to program my GPS to get to 
JFK airport on Long Island (No big green signs anywhere to direct
the clueless me.)
Looked for a parking lot, a Walmart or equivalent, something 
with a big lot so I could pull out of the way for a few minutes
with no one nearby.  There are no Walmarts.  There is
nothing analogous to the big empty parking lots where
many of us learned how to drive a car the first time.  There
was no place to go to get out of everyone's way.  Oy!

Looks to me like every city that was invented before
the auto has painted itself into a corner.
