I’ve spent just over a year in New York City up to this point. Moving here was a big deal for me. I’d lived in or around larger cities like Austin or Atlanta before, but when you’re a small town Texas kid that comes from a town of 400 people, moving to NYC is a pretty big deal.
Many people who are far better at stringing words into sentences than I am have written about New York City, so I won’t bother to write a love letter to the city. Though, I do feel it’s deserving of one. And at the same time, I feel that New York City is deserving of some of the most visceral hate mail imaginable.
