Here is my "burb."

Not sure if that's "urban" enough. I can walk to bars, restaurants, shopping and light rail.

Wow, those are some pretty spread out suburbs. Here's Long Island.


Here is the town i'm moving to on Long Island, about 10 miles outside the city
http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&sour...5&z=13&iwloc=A


This is Great Neck, about 5 miles outside the city right on the water. Basically the richest area of Long Island. This is where the term "the gold coast" is coined, like where The Great Gatsby took place. These houses go for at least 5 million here. Most of Long Island isn't spread out like this, not even 80 miles outside the city.

Just a few miles outside the city:
elmont, ny - Google Maps

Then I'll take you waaaaay out about 65 miles outside the city, still on Long Island, and even that far away it's still kind of dense:
Mastic Beach, New York - Google Maps

And I'll take you even further out, about 85 miles further and you still have suburbs. More spread out and a lot more trees, but still there nonetheless:

Suburbs in the Los Angeles area tend to be more dense than in other cities. It is part of the reason the metropolitan area (not the city itself) is the densest in the United States.

Except I can walk to a lot of different places from the house. Your roads look like country roads once you go a few blocks from your location. This road is just a few blocks away from where I'm moving. Most of the roads are this busy:

levittown, ny - Google Maps

And also the train station that has trains running every 10-15 mins:

To get back on topic, what I like about my suburb is the train and bus access. You would think it's its own city

For now I just looked at San Leandro, and i'm surprised it doesn't look more..west coast? I don't know how to describe it. I guess I picture houses that are in SF. I thought they would be similar. The neighborhoods look like those in the northeast. I still love that area of CA. Would love to move there one day or have a second place there.
