Stranded in Buffalo

I think I have figured something out. My life is stranded in Buffalo. I am stranded within a small Jewish and academic community which never really grows and never really shrinks. It just stays small. Everyone talks about leaving, but no one can. You wish it got bigger, you wish more people would come (like you), but it never happens. You resign yourself to live in Buffalo because you are not bold enough to leave and not dumb enough to move to Teaneck.

What do you mean by "Everyone talks about leaving, but no one can"? Which community are you talking about---the Jewish community? Some people have left. There are alternatives to Buffalo and Teaneck. --Sam
