On Loneliness In A City Of Over 8 Million

Back when I was an undergrad at Syracuse, someone once asked a professor during a writing class, "How on earth could someone be lonely in New York City? There are so many people."

My professor's eye widened at the student's naïveté. "It's very easy to be lonely in New York," he said. "You'd be surprised."

This beautiful video sums up his sentiment perfectly.
