The CITY of Charlotte, that's not true. Most of the newer homes have different styles. They have beautiful, older streetcar nieghborhoods. Now, the Charlotte SUBURBS, I do agree. Thery're nice, but cookie-cutter heaven.

right. i doubt any CITY is predominately cookie cutter. i'm referring to the outlying areas.

I think it had something to do with the end of WWII, and the baby booming births. We were all feeling our mass construction oats back then. The ultimate symbol of this is Levittown. You can smell those cookies from here.

There are neighborhoods in Denver that look very much like the picture you posted j33. The front yards are a little bigger, but otherwise, the homes look similar. I have posted on several forums that the houses in some of the hippest neighborhoods all look alike until the landscaping grows in, additions are built, and the paint colors change. And what about the row houses of 100+ years ago. Talk about cookie cutter!
