Yeah, this place is much more vertical than Chicago, which is more expansive and low-lying. Manhattan just towers over you and slow-steams you. I used to feel amazed when I went to visit fam in more suburban places by the atmospheric difference. A friend of a friend once said they couldn’t stay here long because there was so little sky. I would have never put it that way, but I love it now that I’ve heard that perspective.
I like both kinds of environs, but I can understand why people simply cannot tolerate a city like this.
