    I certainly want as little property as possible and the hugher up the better. I do not want sidewalks to shovel. I want no exterior maintanence at all. It doesn't suit me. I like it all contained. Laundry facility in the condo as well.

    I definitely like being in the thick of it. A condo in the heart of the city is ideal for me.

    Give me the big city. It's so great having so many choices for everything... and I know that if I want to get a slice of pie at 2 in the morning, or a giant chili burger, I know the places. You can spend years exploring a city, and still find nice little places you passed over. One thing I also like about where I live is that I am just across the street from my city's biggest part. At any time of the day or night, I can wander around the park, just enjoying the scenery, feeding the ducks if I want. It's just nice.

    I grew up in the country on a farm. Moved to a fairly big city in my early 20's. Got tired of it within a year or so, moved back to the farm, been here another 20 years and glad of it. I see deer, raccoons, foxes and squirrels in my front yard. I can sit at my picnic table and can't see the neighbor's house. It's quiet and peaceful. I love it.

    I live a couple hour's drive from a semi-major city, and do go visit there on occasion to enjoy what it has to offer; so I do get the attraction. But living there? Not for me.

    To each his own, of course.

    Being close to my neighbors have always bothered me. I've noticed either one of two things happens. You either become very close with your neighbors, or you completely ignore each other. Either one works out pretty well. And I've never especially felt elbow-to-elbow with people. If you want space, and you know where to go, you can get it. The noise can be annoying sometimes, but if you usually learn to tune it out. Not always though... my old apartment was across from the freeway, and it drove me nuts. But anything less than that, I can handle. As for the 24/7 lifestyle, you don't have to participate. I'll get home at 6 and just lounge around the apartment till i go to sleep, just as often as I'll be up and out late.

    I chomped at the bit my whole childhood to get off the family farm. The irony is that now I am an adult and can't wait for the chance to go back there for good.

    My house is in a subdivision on a ten-acre lot; about two acres of it is lawn, believe me when you get to be my age the lawn starts looking like a field. The wife loves it, me, Iím starting to look at condos on the beach; Iíll keep everyone informed.

    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    Did I say something earlier about an urban slant to this board?

    I wish I was a rich man so that I could just build a cabin out in the woods away from everything/everybody and never have to leave my cabin but to fish, explore and be one with Nature.
