Just got back from spending 8 days in NYC, couldnt wait to leave now I'm miserable back here in L.A. and I want to go right back! I mean I was born in NYC and couldnt wait to leave but as soon as I leave I am miserable. anybody else have this kind of love hate relationship with NYC or where they live? The one thing I did come away with this time was that you need to be trully rich to live well in NYC. Otherwise the reality of the city will wear your ass down to a nob.
