As Curbed noted yesterday, this seems to be the week to break up with NYC. Sorry, but we just won't stand for that--and not just because we won't have anything left to write about, or because it will wipe out the equity in our co-op. So why should you stay in New York? We'll tell you:
- It's not L.A.
- It's fun to shock your Kansas relatives with how much you pay for indoor parking.
- Alternatively, you can book all of your ZipCars in the fancy garage behind the Dakota and not even have to tip the attendants at Christmas.
- Now that bed bugs have made movies, opera, shopping and dating out of the question, it's actually cheaper to live here than in Spokane.
- Small apartments are an advantage if you do get bed bugs.
- Moreover, since you work 80 hours a week, chances are your 450-square-foot studio doesn't bother you so much.
- You don't have to overconsume alcohol at home, as the taxi is your designated driver.
- Menupages has 9,165 menus for New York City, and at least half of them deliver
- You can own a dog without ever actually walking it, and no one will even think you're weird. (You can also walk your cat, and no one will act like you're weird.)
- Where else can you greet someone like a friend on a subway platform, then realize it's the guy across the airshaft who does nude Taekwondo on Thursdays, Sundays and alternate Mondays?
