And there’s something else. On a regular basis, I will be walking around, going about my business, and I’ll see the Empire State Building or the Brooklyn Bridge and it’ll suddenly hit me again. My God. I live here. In a city some people dream their whole lives of just seeing once. That’s pretty goddamn magical.

from this post about “on not being middle class in New York City” (via remnant)


as much as i bitch and moan about the lack of in-unit laundry or having to haul my groceries home with me on the subway, having had the opportunity to live in this city these last few years has been pretty fantastic. i’m going to miss it a lot.
