Do you have your own 1 bedroom on the Upper West Side like Seinfeld? Or do your writing from your private Manhattan digs like Carrie Bradshaw? Or maybe your biggest fear is choking alone in your apartment like Liz Lemon? If you’re a New Yorker living on your own, you’re actually not alone. More Americans are living alone today than ever before. There are currently 31 million adults (1 in every 7) going solo. According to a recent study, nearly half of all U.S. adults are single—a record high. This is not simply a trend; it represents the biggest demographic shift since the baby boom. Join Eric Klinenberg, Kate Bolick, and Daniel Smith in discussing the struggles, the benefits, and the shared experiences of going solo.
