There really is no reason to live in the burbs unless you have kids. They are boring as fuck.


Or unless you want to buy a place and you live in New York City, and do not possess a trust fund....

I figured lol. Nobody working biglaw in NYC can reasonably afford to buy in Manhattan. They all get priced out into Westchester (or worse, Jersey :twisted: ).
