Several things I love about the US (and wish they had in Germany)

Free water, with multiple ice cubes floating in it, brought to your table automatically when you sit down.

Free restrooms. I know it’s hard to find a facility if you’re strolling around Times Square but the US is pretty well served, plumbing-wise, in places like highway rest stops, tourist offices, department stores and railroad stations (that’s assuming you live in a place that has a railroad).

Handicap access (many German museums have places accessible only by stairs, as do almost all restaurants, and the restrooms are often in the basement). 

Serious air-conditioning.
