8 Things Every New Yorker Misses When Leaving The City

If heaven is a place on earth, NYC is it. Yes, the subway pushing and shoving requires patience and hutzpah, the constant buzzing and non-stop working energy can prove exhausting, and the awakening of the sixth sense to rats carrying day-old pizza can be unsettling. But if you ask us if we would trade it for anything else, the answer is an easy 'never.' Once you fall for it, there is no turning back. Yes, a trip abroad or a zip around the world can teach you more than you could learn memorizing an encyclopedia, but also only makes our love for the city that is all things crazy, eccentric, and undeniably unique that much stronger.
