    Sometimes I get waves of mini-depressions and right now I am really missing New York. I am just tired of Florida.

    Its weird because when I am in New York I feel like the city is dirty. But it has the homey feel. When I leave on the plane that is when the crocodile tears form. I have tons of family there.

    Having said that, I am still young and want to travel the world. Most notably Spain, San Diego, San Fran,Chicago, and any city that has great transit, neighborhood shops, and hot guys!

    I was wondering if anyone is tired of their current location?
    Also can San Fran even compare to NY? Im sure its different but wondering if it gives more of a NY vibe than say LA?

    I'm definitely in the same boat. I'm over where I'm living, hell I've BEEN over it, but I'm sticking it out until I finish grad school here. NYC is a magical place tho, so I know what you mean, and very few places compare in my book. I wouldn't say SF is an exact equivalent to NYC (like comparing apples to oranges really), but out of all West Coast cities, I think it comes the closest. It definitely has more of that urban gritty feel to it (much moreso than LA), even tho it's a safe and dynamic city overall. I say explore the great wide open, enjoy your travels, and come back to NYC when you're ready. There's *always* something going on and the city, to me at least, will always welcome you back with open arms!

    I took a long time for me to adjust from DC to Fort Lauderdale and I would imagen New York to Gainesville would be an even harder adjustment. The weather is great and all but I miss family the city feel DC had (even though it is a small and short city by most standards).
    When you are there try to focus on the good things Gainesville has to offer an know it is only temporary.
    Good luck!

    I go through waves of getting bored with Phoenix (believe it or not, you do get tired of sunshine and clear skies almost every day of the year) but I have found that regular vacations to NYC or LA give me my "Big City Fix" and then I'm so happy to get back to the relative tranquility that is life in Arizona.

    To me NYC's Chinatown was such a disappointment after visiting San Francisco. I much prefer Frisco's atmosphere over NYC, but that's just me.

    This guy I sort-of know list his home city on facebook as:

    The Devine Metropolis

    Of course he is refering to NYC and I have to agree!!! Been to San Francisco; loved it, been to Spain; loved it, been to the UK; loved it but there is nothing like NYC!!

    Off subject: I underestimated NO, but the city really charmed me when I visited in Oct, esp the French Quarter. The city literally pulses all day and night on weekends. Fabulous restaurants, jazz clubs, gorgeous architecture, charming art galleries, and drinking on the streets?! HAVE to love that.
