I suspect they are not personally liable for those cars anyway!

That street was going under re-construction, you can tell by the exposed manhole covers. Not all NYC streets are that bad. I would worry more about traffic and NYC taxi cabs as they can be more dangerous. My friend, driving in his S5 was side swiped on a hit and run with a yellow cab. His car is barely 5 months old.
