Let’s talk about New York City, the city that never sleeps, the one that promises you that if you can make it here you can make it anywhere. Millions of people come to New York with a sparkle in their eyes and with the hope that this city will make all of their dreams come true. And for some this actually ends up being the case, however this post is not about them. This post is about the few things that I have learned since moving here almost two years ago.
New York is a city that is constantly pushing you out. It doesn’t really have room for you, it already has enough people. It doesn’t welcome you when you arrive, doesn’t need you when you are here and it certainly doesn’t miss you when you leave. And inevitably most people do. Be it for financial reasons or simply a need for a more peaceful lifestyle, most of these dreamers end up packing up their fantasies and leaving the city that promised to fulfill them.
However after all the observations I have made in the past 20 months, New York is still the one pool I would happily drown in. I guess you could say I’m a fan of complicated relationships.
