The unpleasant emotional effects resulting from visiting a large city, and then returning to rural or suburban life.

Side effects often include depression, boredom, and general life-reevaluation.

Jack: "Nah.. I think I need to go home and rethink my life. NYC gave me a really bad City Hangover."


Lucy: "I think I'm having a city hangover. I visited Caroline last week in the city and she's got all her shit together, and I'm stuck here in this ol' town. I feel so feeble."
