Lindsay Lohan Back to NYC After Rehab For Better or Worse

Farm living ain't the life for Lindsay Lohan ... so she's taking her ass right back to the Big Apple when her latest rehab stint ends ... TMZ has learned.

Sources close to Linds tell us she's decided to set up shop in NYC when she gets out of Cliffside rehab in early August.

As we previously reported ... Lindsay was telling friends she was thinking about moving far from L.A. or NYC because there were too many temptations for a recovering addict, and too many paparazzi.

We're told the chunky middle of the U.S. of A. is no longer appealing, so she's going back to NYC.

What could go wrong?
