You lived in Williamsburg for about 7 years until you started a perpetual touring lifestyle last June. Do you miss the city when you're on the road or is it a nice break for you?
New York is the only place I know of where if you stay too long, you get sick of it, but the instant you leave you miss it. Things I miss about New York whilst on the road: 24 hour bodegas, instant cheap eats everywhere, amazing-looking people who are boring, boring-looking people who are amazing, a transit system that never shuts down, and a city of 8 million where you still manage to run into everyone you've ever known.
