If you’re living in NYC or other big city, has the stay at home order made you think about moving to suburbs so at least you’d have a back yard ?

No it just makes me realize how boring suburban life would be. Staying with my parents in the suburbs rn

Yes and no... I want the extra space for a home office but I would be bored in the suburbs.

Move out and you won’t regret it. As long as you work in NYC you’re fine. There’s no need to live and work in NYC. That means you’re just living to work and never taking yourself out of that atmosphere. Obviously this advice is for once you want to raise a family. Otherwise I would probably live in NYC. Only other way would be to earn enough to live in NYC during the week and buy an escape place for the weekends so you get the best of both worlds.

lol no. i can’t imagine ever trying to take care of a yard..... or a stand-alone house in the suburbs for that matter. i’ve lived in apartments in the middle of the city my whole life.

I grew up in farmland. I love the energy of the city during the day, and my quiet respite in the burbs afterwards.

Yes, it has made me want to leave the city and never look back.

Yes. Would love a backyard or even a patio at this point. Would love fresh air from my own home.

Depends on your personality and where you are in life. I personally love how there’s practically something to do 24 hrs in the city.

No because by the time my lease is up and I move this all would be over

No, my apartment has balcony and my neighborhood is very walkable, with a lot of restaurants around.

I left all my friends and family to come to NYC three years ago. Now I’m going through this pandemic feeling overwhelmingly lonely and so extremely worried about them. People who get to spend this time with loved ones should be grateful. With that being said, I am absolutely going to start planning my move once this is over.

i could go on an explanatory rant about how my only living grandparents are assholes or how i know my parents have their shit so much better together than me, that if anybody needed to drop something off for the others, it’s them for me. even though they’re about 70. but the truth is i was drunk(er than now) when i made that comment and it was too late to delete when i reread it sober. but regretted it and i tried. and i found myself hoping nobody would even read it. so this is me sending you love now. not ridicule. so this is all i’m gonna write. and i’m sorry.

No. I have no interest in having to take care of a yard. A balcony would be nice, though.
