There’s an article in New York magazine about leaving New York City – with a great deal of focus on destination – Buffalo.
I left NYC 16 years ago, so read this with great interest – until I choked on my coffee on —
“When we think about leaving New York, we usually think about what we would lose, and rarely about what we might gain. To that end, prospective destinations are measured by how similar they are to here. Philadelphia is New York, but cheaper. San Francisco is New York, but gentler. It’s the “squint” factor: Well, if I squint, it’s like New York, sort of, and I guess I can live with that.”
I wonder – have I been squinting for 16 years now and did not know it?
