Casey Neistat Moved Back to New York City and Here’s Why

Casey Neistat YouTuber

You may have heard the name Casey Neistat before. He is a filmmaker (a damn good one too) and YouTuber who has gained a lot of popularity in recent years. However, over the last year, he has been relatively quiet. In fact, many people were surprised when he announced that he was moving back to New York City.

You see, Casey and his family relocated to Los Angeles (Venice Beach to be exact, our HQ) after his second daughter was born, hoping for more expansive living space and family members around to provide childcare support.

Well, LA didn’t quite work out the way they’d hoped. In a recent video, Casey talks about how he and his wife felt isolated in their new city. They missed the community and connection that they had back in New York.

Living in Los Angeles also had its downsides for Casey. It’s a tale for another day living in Venice Beach, but he mentions doubts, having no notion of what he was searching for in California, and feeling creatively stifled. Here he is on the video discussing it:

“I realized that I was in the wrong place, creatively. I felt like I had lost my way.” Casey. And, that “Candice said we never found our footing in California.”

In the end, Casey and his family made the decision to move back to New York City, the place where it all started for him. Casey says that moving back has already made a world of difference for him and his family.

We’re excited to see what Casey will do next and we wish him all the best in his new home.
