New York City: Before

I leave for New York City tonight to see it for the first time and I feel like I'm revisiting a beautiful lucid dream I had as a kid. Can you feel nostalgia for a place you've never been before?

Well, I tell ya, I've got six hours, a few pints and a Hemingway book to kill at the airport while I come up with an answer.

Goodbye, West Coast.

i think you feel inexplicably nostalgic for new york because you probably lived there in a past life :)

In a NYC past life, I'd like to think of myself as either a violently corrupt Irish cop or a deadbeat poet. One of the two.
