We love city life! There was this incredible article in NY Mag about whether or not it was true that cities tend to breed loneliness, and the article found the opposite. Cities breed community, and as one person said, "which is more lonely? Walking down a crowded, electric NYC street with all that culture booming around you or sitting on a porch in a tiny town staring out at miles and miles of empty road." Suburbs and tiny towns have more weird crime and are less diverse, which means less tolerance, too. (Yes, Sarah Palin, it's true) I know some would differ so please feel free to chime in--and I have a friend who moved from the city to a small town and loves it (and we love her). What can I say, I think it depends where you heart lies, and we are all city people and I feel like this is a great gift we are giving Max.
