Yeah, NY is really funny that way... There are sometimes when I feel like this place is the most connected in the world... I have NEVER EVER EVER experienced community the way I have since being here. I talk to my neighbors. I hang out with some of them. We share food and spirits. It's a blast.
Yet, other days it's horribly isolating... Like, everyone's so busy that they don't have time to spend with you.
