I must remind you that suburbia isn't boring. People are. Life is what you make of it, and whereever you go, there you are. There are plenty of boring people in NYC as well.

Ask all your NYC friends for ONE thing worthwhile they've have done in NYC when you explicitly rule out the holy trinity of mindless Moderator cut: Inappropriate language (Eating, pretending to like art, broadway pablum) The silence is deafening. (And no, Hayden and Intrepid don't count, as we've all done that in 8th grade) 20 years in the city, and that's the best you can come up with?

Hey, there's nothing wrong with eating and Moderator cut: Inappropriate language, but I love the duplicity in city people not admitting that's what NUC is all about for them (or all they're capable of) They're just as philistine as the "suburban flyovers" they mock. Same base animals, just wearing trendier attire.

NYC: "Dating, sex, eating, drinking, status whoring.
If you want more substance, go to VT."

Well, don't know about you but if you find dating, sex, eating and drinking boring you must be a hell of a fun guy . . .

Different strokes for different folks. There are so many people living in and around NYC that are unhappy with their situation but feel stuck, golden handcuffs, etc... Traveling and finding your spot is the answer.

I personally feel NYC is a bit overrated, especially now with all of the chains taking over. It's a huge outdoor mall!
