Well, you’ve done it; you’ve successfully scouted out the part of Queens that the hipsters have overlooked. Pat yourself on the back, because you deserve a gold trophy encased in diamonds.
Now that you’re home and live in a neighborhood that actually has real-life amenities like grocery stores, you can probably take the time to go through your stuff and get rid of all your books about how to make DIY meals in tiny rooms using coffee makers and radiators.
Still, you don’t want to risk the chance of losing your books (or what have you) if you ever decide to take the plunge back to Manhattan. Clutter is like purgatory, but a lot more happy. You can put everything you don’t need right now in storage and pick it up when you need it. This borough is on your side.
