But so is suburbia, which also isn't all about desperate expanses and endless parking lots. I can get to ethnic restaurants and bookstores. Heaven forfend, I can even walk there. I don't get some of the chest-beating about suburban life on this thread, except that I think too many blanks are filled in with too much imagination.
I think your statements are fair. I agree there are many downsides to urban life, and it absolutely depends on who you are, what you do, how your health is, how many kids you have, etc.
