nymag.com: 'Arrivals'

nymag.com: 'Arrivals'

(Click the link above to check out this great article from New York magazine about 'Why People Still Want to Move to New York in Tough Times.')

I think it must be a cliche these days to be a young college graduate who dreams of moving to New York City and making it big. I really don't care. I visited Manhattan when I was eleven, fell in love, and have imagined myself living there (at least for a while) ever since. First, it was because I wanted to be an actress, then a fashion designer. Now...well I'm not exactly sure. But I am sure I still want to live there as badly as I did when i was eleven.

When I read this article, I couldn't really decide if it was inspiring or off-putting. Yes: it's a recession. Jobs are hard to find. Times are tough. So what? If New York magazine is throwing photoshoot parties to welcome new residents, count me in.

Thoughts?
