"New York City and L.A. were once charged elements sparking creativity. But the distance between these two culture capitals has collapsed... Having lived in New York and Los Angeles for a decade each, I claim both cities. I take no pleasure in seeing New York's culture wither and I find myself grasping to hold on to the secret parts of L.A. that brought me here. We all feel the need for that place that is authentic, inspiring and uniquely matched to the rhythms of our soul. Neither New York or Los Angeles is that place for me anymore, and I refuse to accept New Angeles as my home."
