Kotik replied to Jeff White's discussion Two questions:
"1. Visited Canada 4 years ago. Clean cities, super nice food, polite people, very high taxes in comparison with ours, more stability though during economic tribulations. Find blogs and ask those who have moved there from NYC or elsewhere. All…"

"I've noticed the similar trend in NYC after returning 2.5 years ago after 4 years away. The city's feeling has changed dramatically, I don't grasp it any more. A sense of belonging here has been damaged. Or, maybe, try to change your…"

Kotik commented on Anna's blog post Boredom in the Boroughs
"Absolutely naked and disarming truth but I would disagree with "...a cozy little house? A sweet little garden...". I am not sure that these would solve the problem. Everybody is different. Thank you Anna."

Mark Manne commented on Kotik's blog post Life after New York when living in Western New York and then life in New York again!
"I moved away five years ago and am now in Boston.  I am happily married and will most likely never move back, yet it is always a fantasy in the back of my mind. What has been your experience now that you are back?"

Kotik commented on Jo's group Colorado
"I lived in Denver for a few months. Then lived in NYC, Rochester, NY, and back to Brooklyn again. Have some family in Denver. Like Colorado and would move there only on family and/or job reasons. :)"

A group for anyone with an interest in moving to Colorado and for any ex-New Yorkers who currently live there. I'd love to meet others who share one of my dreams and who presently live it. :)See More

Life after New York when living in Western New York and then life in New York again!

Such a strange feeling. Lived in NYC, then joined this site as the ex-New Yorker when living NY far Upstate (Western New York), and then returned to NYC! I'm not the ex anymore for the time being. What a circle! Did somebody come back to NYC after 4 or so years away? What do you feel? :)See More

Kotik left a comment for Lisa
"Welcome Lisa! NYC is a love-hate feeling. If not planning to leave try to reverse your feelings to more positive, I know it is not easy. Surroundings do matter. Have an idea for you - leave NYC internally, not physically, immigrate into yourself…"

Kotik commented on Sarah Williams's blog post Subway vs. Car
"3.5 years ago I left NYC for western NY and experienced a deep cultural shock. Later had to buy a car. A few days ago visited NYC for a job interview. Experienced deep cultural shock again: huge city, tons of diverse people, hot & humid you…"
