Some people find Manhattan overwhelming. They think the big city’s too much – too fast, too crowded, too packed with sights and sounds. I’m just the opposite. Even when I came to NYC as a kid, it felt right. It’s why I moved here when I could for the first time about a decade ago, and it’s why every time I come back, I reconnect with a part of my psyche that basks in the unconventionality and the chaos.
It’d be tough to set up shop here again without the financial means to maintain the lifestyle to which I’ve grown accustomed (read: living in an apt larger than a teacup), but given the chance to be here more often than I have in the past couple of years, I’d take it. No doubt. It’s great to be back.
