I hope you find solidarity knowing you are like so many others. You’re a special kind of person, the kind who decided to choose what their destiny would be, not have it laid out for them. Their New York might be in Los Angeles. Or Nashville. Or a sustainable farm in South America. That isn’t the point. The point is you didn’t commit to change because this city would make you the woman you wanted to be. You knew the woman you were. You know the woman you demanded yourself to become, and she belonged in New York.

olivandra:

Is Philadelphia Philly the new Brooklyn?

You’re burned out on Brooklyn, you can’t afford Manhattan, you’re too bratty for Queens, so what do you do? My friend Ben, a recent Brooklyn ex-pat, has the answer: “If you want to live in Brooklyn and pay half in rent, move to Philly!” he proclaimed, the night before he left the island for good.

….And he’s not my only friend to flee what is sometimes (condescendingly) referred to as the “sixth borough.”With lower rents and cheaper beer, is Philly the dream of Brooklyn, actually realized?

I mention Brooklyn and the subway because that’s where I live now. Living in Brooklyn gives you a certain worldview that is often unfair or unkind to the rest of the world. But that’s only because everything that is wonderful about Brooklyn is buried beneath everything that sucks about Brooklyn, and we are all oh-so-proud of ourselves for having dug our way out and found it.
