Breaking Up and the City

An acquaintance was recently discussing the difference between breaking up in the city and breaking up anywhere else. Here, he noted, everyone gets their business done in the public eye: couples scream and argue on the street, in the park, in the subway. And rarely are apartments ever private; with their tissue-thin walls, your neighbors definitely know if things with you and your partner are going well or not. This city is like a fishbowl. There’s simply no other way to do it.

Of course, Time Out NY added another option to the mix, with an entertaining little piece on the best break-up bars in New York [thanks to my classmate Alyson for bringing this to my attention]. There’s actually some brilliant advice in this fluff piece. For example, if your soon-to-be-ex is a screamer, take him or her to a loud sports bar where yelling isn’t out of place.
