Listen here. Aired on the Marketplace Morning Report.
This non-narrated piece was part of Marketplace's New York Week coverage in October, 2005. I met documentary maker Pete Nicks and his family as they prepared to move out of their Brooklyn apartment and head back to Oakland. He loved the city, but it also drove him nuts. He talked to me about what was driving him back west after several years of living in NYC, a place where he had assumed he'd forge a career.
