I'm currently living in an older suburb. Have a huge lawn to mow. Neighbors not too friendly. Lots of extra space for bicycles and ... basically ... crap.
But I get a nice long ride every morning I commute. Good groceries nearby. Some shops. Nearby cycling facilities.
But it really doesn't feel like I'm living in a community. I'd like a downtown location where I know a few people. But, as another cycling friend mentioned, "I'd move downtown if there was a place to buy groceries".
Which is kind of false. There are no supermarkets, but there are some pricier marts around. Pubs and restaurants galore, but no hardware store.
What would you do? Where would you move?
