I'm pretty sure this novel can explain some of it.

Change your perspective for a second.

Compressed cities like those are like a huge smoking room. Walking on a somewhat busy street is pretty much the same as having someone blow smoke on your face. The grass next to busy roads tend to be black if it doesn't rain for a while.



It is illegal to smoke on the street in Tokyo. :P

I hate the city. I prefer to see the color green when I look outside. And I hate people so having millions of them within a few miles of my position would result in a disaster.

I've lived in the suburbs all my life and have only visited NYC as a tourist, but I liked it. I enjoyed going to see a broadway show, shopping, eating at some really neat restaurants, and seeing all different kinds of people. We don't have nearly as much diversity where I live. I think it's a nice place to visit as a tourist, but I would never want to live there. Like other people have said, it was pretty dirty and unfriendly. I definitely wouldn't consider myself "hung up" on NYC, but I am glad I went and I really enjoyed the trip. It's probably because it was so different for me. I might not have liked it as much if I lived somewhere similar to it.

To be far, there are a few places in NYC that I actually do like:

- Chinatown. Good food and some good shopping. I can't think of the name, but in a basement of one store is a small store that sells cookware from Japan (dishes, chopsticks, bowls, cups, statues, etc...)

- West Village - a few cool hangouts (Fat Cat Billiards, Rocco's Pastry Shop) I used to go to those two places all the time

- East Village -> Ramon places... I love ramon!!!

- In Soho, there is a Japanese place that sells Curry, Omurice, and parfaits. The also have book cases of manga and other stuff from Japan. The place is called: Hiroko's Place (Pics: http://www.roboppy.net/food/2006/07/hirokos_kitchen_excessive_phot.html )

I'd never been to New York nor Japan. But I want to visit them one day. Probably in few years. LOL.

I think whatever place you go to will be great if you make it that way in your head.

One of my favorite places is in Northeast PA. I bought a house there and spend my weekends there. It's out in the mountains, there are 7 miles of forest behind my house, and I get all sorts of crazy wildlife in my yard. Bears, deer, turkeys, foxes, skunks, chipmunks, bobcats, racoons, possums, and even seen a porcupine once.

A place that is very different from my hometown, I will find interesting but I wouldn't use the term 'hung up' so you can count me out from 'everyone that is hung up about NYC'.
