My husband and I left Brooklyn in April for a family cabin in rural Virginia, and then gave up our Brooklyn lease in June. It's been 3.5 months away and I can't wait to come home to NY. We're actually looking to buy a place in Brooklyn since mortgage rates and home prices are coming down, and commit for the long haul. We could move to another city, but no part of me wants to. We've lived in NY for almost 15 years, so it's home.
