1.) People really notice when you go for a run
2.) There are a number of great places where one can sing in private
3.) The impossible-to-get-a-table-at restaurants aren't that expensive, the portions are ginormous and if you miss the big city, just remember that everyone in Times Square eats here too!
4.) Strangers pee in your ditch, not on your stoop
5.) No pressure to look cute. Ever.
6.) Mom recurrently asks "who let the dogs out?"
7.) I comfortably live on the same daily budget as a third-world adopt-a-child
Home for 2 days and typically stressing about everything that I am probably not missing in NY. Eat me, Hamptons.
