Landing lights are on below FL180 now (used to be 10,000), so you probably were higher than ten. In addition to the usual ATC variables, it could also have benn turbulence at higher altitudes. I was working the west coast yesterday, so I can't tell you for sure since I didn't have any flights in the area....

Do you guys ever utilize tower-to-tower IFR in areas of the USA like these, or is that just limited to us GA folk

I don't know your flight number, but if this was your flight, you went right through NY's airspace. That would account as futurecaptain said for the delay in climb.

your assigned altitude will usually be FL170
