155. NYC vs. Everywhere Else

I thought this article was quite hilarious since I’m trying to move back to NYC while this guy is praising the reasons why he left. I think every New Yorker has reasons to love/hate the city while other people say they “love New York but only to visit.” It’s a city like no other and the author’s comment about feeling like you’re doing bigger things is kind of true. There’s something about that Manhattan energy (and I’m not talking about the a-hole pushing you into the subway car) that makes you feel like you can do anything. Granted, you’re probably never going to live alone and you’ll find yourself repeating the phrase “Seriously? A martini is $18?” but for many people New York City is revitalizing and empowering. Cheers to the Big Apple (even if you hate it)!
