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?"

"Just finished it.  It was really interesting... There were so many different perspectives on what makes NYC so great (and sometimes not so great). Did you read it?  What did you think about it?"
