Not true, 15 minutes is very realistic...but it really depends on how many lights you have to travel through. I live in this area and work at I-25/San Mateo. 15 min in standard traffic, 20 if there's an accident on the freeway, 10 if I hit all the lights and traffic is light


Extremely unrealistic during rush hour, barely doable in light traffic situations.[/quote]

Default Neighborhoods

Where do some of you regular posters on the forum live? I'm trying to gauge the different neighborhoods in ABQ & R.R. My wife like's VR and I kinda like the Uptown/NE Heights area. I'm looking for an area that has a good elementary school and within walking distance (1+ mile) of stores if need be.

Oh, I'm in Hoffmantown (Near Menaul/Wyoming). Older ('50's) brick or cinderblock homes, BIG back yards, some nice parks. Near multiple nice parks, lots of shopping including a Super ChinaMart and Uptown.

BWAAHAAHAA!!! My neighbor across the street says that's the last 8 acres of
the original Taylor Ranch and it's grandfathered to have livestock. Since his yard
backs up to it, I assume he's even more familiar with Senior Burro's dulcet tones...

(For those who are confused, Zia's referring to the time he was standing in front
of my house in a typical Westside suburban neighborhood and a burro started braying;
he missed the sheep chorus though... )
