Fair enough. My reasons for living where I do are these:
1) natural beauty, tranquility, the river, an abundance of what I consider real life - a couple of weeks ago I watched as a deer gave birth to twin fawns in my yard.
And 2) a great city just down the road that offers the best of everything. Best art, music, food, clothing... and skilled tailors.
If you can't find what you need in the county, well, you are not in fact living in the sticks but very close to New York, where you will indeed be able to find what you need. Seems like a great situation to me.
