On Leaving New York

When I tell people that I’m leaving New York for good, there are a small number of responses I get as though it’s a conversation with an NPC (non-player character) in a video game, and they’re only programmed to offer so many paths, all of them shitty. The worst part is that it’s almost a little sad, the way many of them have uncritically drunk the Kool Aid in one way or another.
