London Thread spin-off - Londoners, do you feel primarily like you live in London or in the area that you live in? <LME-Centric>
Does that make sense?
What I mean is London's a massive place and, to me, saying you live in London is a bit like saying you live in Kent or saying you live in Yorkshire.
Really, I feel I live in Muswell Hill, rather than in London and I feel when people say 'why live in London?' like in the other thread they're talking about this fictional all-consuming monolith that doesn't really mean a great deal.
I might be talking bollocks but anyway - do you feel like you live first and foremost in 'London' or in your local area of it? People in other big cities, feel free to comment. But proper big cities though - not places like Manchester.
