“Find meaning. Distinguish melancholy from sadness. Go out for a walk. It doesn’t have to be a romantic walk in the park, spring at its most spectacular moment, flowers and smells and outstanding poetical imagery smoothly transferring you into another world. It doesn’t have to be a walk during which you’ll have multiple life epiphanies and discover meanings no other brain ever managed to encounter. Do not be afraid of spending quality time by yourself. Find meaning or don’t find meaning but 'steal' some time and give it freely and exclusively to your own self. Opt for privacy and solitude. That doesn’t make you antisocial or cause you to reject the rest of the world. But you need to breathe. And you need to be.”
 ― Albert Camus

If I lived in New York

My borough would be Manhattan without question. Nolita, the Upper West Side and Tribeca sound like they would suit me. I looked up Nolita first and it looks like a chic Parisian neighborhood. The Upper West Side seems quiet and populated by early birds. Tribeca attracts me because of the film festival. I love that NYC has an immense library system. Plenty of bookstores as well. I couldn't get tired of either of those. 

Anyone care to share their fantasies about living in New York or any big city? Do any of you live there and want to tell?
