I'm a small town girl who moved to the big apple and will have to say, over time, have adapted quite well! However, its true what they say, 'you can take a girl out of the country, but you can't take the country out of the girl!' And with that being said, have you been up to the Cloisters?? They are amazing. I find myself retreating up there on the regular, not to mention that there are really fantastic rental deals in the area! ;-)
The Cloisters are like nothing else in manhattan. Actually once you get up there, kick your shoes off and enjoy the sunshine, you'd never even remember that you're only a 30 min A train commute from the high speed bustle of Manhattan. And if you're the true city type, who can't imagine a moment away from restaurants and entertainment, you can even find that up in the Cloisters too. Try the New Leaf Cafe while you're there. It is enchanting and the food is wonderful.
So in conclusion, I am extremely grateful for the Cloisters and it's incredible 'country like' serenity, and I just highly recommend you take the trip, country girl or not!
