What is the fascination with New York City??

I can't get over it.  A huge part of me just wants to move there.  I can't stop thinking about what life would be like there.

Of course, in my mind it's romanticized and perfect.

Though I've moved away from 'home' before and I know what it's like.

Part of me feels like this is my chance, this is the point in my life where I take that big risk.  Do something gutsy. 

Besides, if I don't like it, I can always move back.

Right?

And why do I want to move there anyway?  It's busy and loud and dirty.  

I've talked before about the individuality I felt there.  Is it because I don't feel like I have that individuality here?

If I can find the satisfaction I'm looking for in Salt Lake City, can I find it in New York?  Or anywhere else?

Am I running from something?  Hiding from something I can't fix?

What is the need to have a new start?

Have I only outgrown the experiences I can have here?

Do I just need to travel more? Or, if I travel and see new places, will I become more unsettled?

It's been suggested that I visit before I move.  Which I agree with.  Flights are cheap.  And worth the expense.

But that doesn't answer the questions.  Why am I so fixated on moving?
