The land of the disconnected and ignorant

I still find it surprising when I meet people here in New York, and they tell me that they’ve never been to California (or don’t want to go), or anywhere on the West Coast for that matter. A flight between San Francisco and New York is only about six hours, and during low seasons could be as little as $250 round-trip. Where is the curiosity about the world outside of them, even if it is just outside the vicinity of Manhattan, or even the tri-state area? It’s even more befuddling to meet people who live in New York who have never been to Philadelphia and other close cities.
