arise, shine, for your light has come
Andy: New York isn't going anywhere. It also isn't getting any kinder or less expensive, and you aren't getting any younger. I tend to feel that, living in Washington Heights, you were always in suburbia anyway, but I'm glad a more gentle suburban environment seems to hold more happiness for you.
Oh, I'm not moving back. I'm just saying, I miss what I liked. And even some of the stuff I didn't like (note the 181st Street station) is starting to grow a healthy patina of nostalgia.
That's one nasty looking subway station. As for the rest, you could come visit. We could offer you some space, so you don't have to pay for a hotel. Just hop on a plane and come stay with us. Then all you'd need is a LIRR ticket and you're on your way!
I LOVE that photo of Manhattan from the air.
'Tis true: Had I had to continue to suffer the slings and arrows of living at 181st St., I, too, might've fled. (In a sense, I suppose I sort-of did -- to 34th St. (ish)!)
