This could just be me, but I’m pretty sure it’s a fairly universal thing for people who live in the outer boroughs who are also above a certain age. This sentiment has been compounded now that I have to pay $2.25 for every single subway fare which means I try to get all my Manhattan traveling done in one fell swoop. One trip to Manhattan feels normal for a day, but the second one usually feels like a slog because it’s about another hour of traveling that wouldn’t have happened if I just planned my Manhattan time better. So even though I do find myself going into Manhattan twice in one day it always feels wrong.
