I love New York. I also hate New York. I also hate that every writer in this city eventually writes an obligatory article about how annoying city living is, but I love it that none of those writers choose to move away, including myself.
At the end of the day I suppose it’s better to have a love-hate relationship with something than be completely bored of it, but in the long run is that really fulfilling? In the name of playing devil’s advocate, I have put together seven reasons to move away from New York. Take my advice or not, I don’t really care. I am too busy avoiding eye contact with you on the sidewalk and walking really fast with my headphones on, even though my iPhone is dead and I have nowhere to be.
