I am really liking a style of houses that's really popular at the moment in Tulsa, OK and Springfield, MO among other areas.

I like those too - they're starting to pop up here also. I think I'd classify it as "french provincial"? here's one near me:

^ speak for yourself! i live in the East and my home does not look like that at all. Plus, it seems we're comparing urban eastern style homes to suburban western style houses. Lets either do both E and W urban homes or both E and W suburban homes instead of a mix it would make things easier. Unless you mean both of those are in the East!!

(also, other than the Bronx, and other parts of NY, how many cities even in the east have apartments that look like that?)

The point is that the East has older, denser, tenement buildings. Whether you live in a 6 floor tenement building in the Bronx or a 2 story tenement in Pittsburg(sp?).

Even if you compare an urban area in the West, the East just looks bad.

That was just an ignorant post.. you can find so many houses simaler to the second shown.. thats why i say the east, because it has a wider variety of diffrent styles due to the time period of when it all started.
