I live up the 50 corridor. The growth here is astounding, and depressing to me. In such a short amount of time, so much open space has been swallowed up by strip malls and mega McMansions. I do not for the life of me understand the attraction of those monster homes which seem to take up 80 - 90 percent of the lot, and have not more than 10 feet between neighbors. hope no one there gets a neighbor they don't like. The developers love these homes, they sell by the square footage.

My house is pretty small, which makes my 1/4 acre seem big. I am lucky in that I bought a house which is a block from a large developed park one way, and a block the other way is a very large state recreation/ natural area. I grew up in Berkeley - haha, the yuppie label is nothing when you come from Bezerkeley. Didn't know it was such an unusual place until I moved out into the world a bit.
