Life Swap: What If You Left New York?

There’s Prewar Style, and Then There’s Really Prewar Style.

British writer D.H. Lawrence described Taos, New Mexico, as a “vast and living landscape,” which sounds just about right for a New Yorker on the verge. Its stunning mesas, burnt-sienna skies, and proudly creative roots—Ansel Adams and Georgia O’Keeffe made art there—are the perfect antidote for a city- induced nervous breakdown. For the price of a nice-size midtown studio, you could find sanity once more in a two-bedroom pueblo-style house. Just in time to want to come back again once the hold of holistic living wears off.
