MOst of the people in NYC do not own a car.

Well, you are correct, but barely; 54% don't own a vehicle, and New York is the only city with that distinction, of more than half the population not owning a vehicle.

And although I can't speak for New York City, I can speak for Washington DC, having worked there for the last 8 years, and while many do without a car, it's usually the wealthy that do it willingly; most do it because they have no choice.
