    "50 Reasons to Be Pretty Damn Euphoric You Live in New York City"

    http://blogs.villagevoice.com/runninscared/2010/11/50_reasons_to_b.php

    Sometimes life seems hard here -- the crowds, the expense, the 24-hour-living-and-working lifestyle...But then there are days, like yesterday, when we're ever so glad we live in New York City. Like when much of the rest of the nation goes a reddish color of Tea Party, and we stick to coffee and stay (largely) blue. Like when Andrew Cuomo wins against Carl Paladino. And like when the Aeropostale at Times Square institutes an "AERO Dance Cam" to keep the young folks away from the East Village on weekends and allow us to mock them via the Internet...

    Here are 50 other reasons to be blissfully happy that you live in New York City today -- and every day -- that you live here. May it be a very long time. Unless you want to leave, in which case, get the fuck out, and can we have your apartment?

    50. Sending your laundry out for someone else to wash and dry it is not only convenient, it's just good business. Especially since you will probably never own a washer and dryer. Which means you never have to feel guilty about not doing your own laundry. Next.

    49. Drinking coffee four times a day, every day, isn't the exception, it's the rule.

    48. The secret Chick Fil-A at the NYU dining hall.

    47. There is always someone crazier than you. ALWAYS.

    46. The view from the Brooklyn Bridge.

    45. The view of the Brooklyn Bridge.

    44. The epic feeling you get running to catch a train and succeeding...just before the doors close.

    43. Bored to Death. 30 Rock. SNL. And a million other things that film here and we love. RIP Law and Order.

    How is it that people who once lived in NYC talk about how great it is yet move away? If it is so great why did you not stay?

    Employment opportunities sometimes supersede where you have to live
    and like great art
    you don't have to live in a photo or a painting to appreciate it

    This song has quickily replaced; for me atleast, Sinatra's New York, New York. Though both just stir such pride for my city, state and place of birth.

    "How is it that people who once lived in NYC talk about how great it is yet move away? If it is so great why did you not stay?"

    As great of a place as it is, it is also VERY expensive to live, almost impossible to stay above water for many. The weather isn't great, the taxes are stifling... There are many places in the country that offer a much better standard of living. Visiting is always an option. I would never go back, I have slowed my pace down quite a bit and feel way more relaxed...
