    There are days when I miss home like crazy; days when I ask myself, "how can I be so in love with a place?" My feet yearn for your streets, New York. My eyes pine for your lights. And my heart, my errant heart, longs for your beat.

    northarrow saidAll your missing today is more rain and high wind.


    And crowds. The miserable weather has not had any noticeable effect on the throngs who come to see the tree at Rockefeller Center. And who can blame them? It's a knockout.

    Sigh... On days like this, I miss even the rain--the really hard rain, hitting the window of the diner. And as for the crowds, well... we don't have those in Yorkville. I want to just sit at the promenade, and stare at the Triboro.

    Visiting New York as we speak. I'm obsessed with it. Probably my favorite city ever along with Paris.

    New York isn't really loud. I'm in the West Village right now and it's super quiet. It's never crowded. The only super loud place i've been in New York is Midtown Manhattan, but Midtown Manhattan is like what...1% of New York City? Does anyone even live there? If you want loud, go to Tokyo! It's crazy and makes NYC seem sleepy.

    The generalizations are silly. It's ike saying Chicago is a horrible dangerous arctic tundra dump because of what I see on the news or what i've seen driving in random parts of that city.

    Me too 19c79. And don’t forget the beautiful waterways. My body lives for your rivers, New York. Nothing like swimming the mighty Hudson or under the Brooklyn Bridge or around the Statue of Liberty or going all the way around…..….

    omg, I went and visited NYC for the first time and I fell in love. I want to go back so bad and I miss it so very much. It was literally the best 10 days of my life. I had a blast and really met some amazing people.

    MuchMoreThanMuscle saidTo each their own. I've been to NYC three times. It's crowded, dirty, very noisy, very expensive and the garbage cans are on the streets because there are not many alleys. This contributes to that garbage smell on those hot and humid days while walking down sidewalks.

    It's not my cup of tea.


    Much not on the upper east side!!icon_idea.gificon_idea.gif

    NYC is amazing. You just had a bad time then, or just ended up in the wrong places.

    Tino safe trip home, when your mission is completed!!

    Thanks, Mike! And, heh... the UES is where I live (Yorkville, to be precise, as I'm not rich enough to live west of 3rd).

    I'm not interested in comparing NY to other cities, or declaring it the best city in the world. It most certainly is not the right place for everyone. It is simply my home--a home I am in love with--and the place best suited for me.
