I know we've done a poll in the past about what area of the nation people would prefer to live in, but in this poll I'm just curious to see where everyone currently lives.

If I cross two blocks, there's a D train station.

I'd say Urban.

You must remember that TV movie called Fort Apache, The Bronx.

Has it improved? Is it still getto? We used to take the subway as kids to Yankee Stadium. Sometimes we wandered off into the Bronx. Not very nice but we were just kids having fun.

A rapidly growing city of 1.5 million. On the 8th floor of an apartment building overlooking the city.

I've lived in both suburbs and rural areas as well. They all have their good points and bad ones...

No, I must live in the Bronx.

Yes it has improved. It's improved alot. But still has that gritty, urban, ghetto look. The streets are filthy, and graffiti is everywhere. Unfortunately, as comapred to the rest of NYC....the Bronx sticks out like a sore thumb. Still a problem with crime....and it's the 3rd poorest urban county in the country.

But I like it.

I live in a suburb of 4,000 on the fringes of a city of 72,000. I'd ideally like to move into that city in a few years though as I've had enough of subdivision living.

i live in a "high-rise", although it's not as high as some of the buildings surrounding it, in probably one of the densest neighborhoods in Chicago. The L is literally outside of my window... definitely urban.

I'm suburban, but really wish I was urban. I hate having to use my car to go everywhere.
