Here’s my question: I’m assuming you’re a freelancer, and can live wherever you want. Why not move to someplace in America where you CAN easily live alone? There are lots of affordable cities with tons of stuff to do where you could live downtown and ALONE for the price you pay in NYC. Would moving somewhere else significantly hurt your freelance opportunities maybe?
I just never understand why anyone would live in NYC if they didn’t have to. It’s like living there is buying an experience, then actually living in a place.
