“People think it’s so hard to leave New York, but it’s easy. You just pack up all your stuff in boxes and call a truck.”That's what The Ex and I did 20 years ago (to our friends' horror), only we had our own truck so didn't even have to make a call.
--Garth Stein (THE ART OF RACING IN THE RAIN), quoted in NYT State of the Unions
The hard part is moving back to the city. Which I'm not about to do, though living two hours up the Hudson would be fine by me.
