The city I live in: I call it the 3H city. Homeless, Hippies, Hipsters. These 3 segments of the population really stick out in large numbers. These segments of the population are very much a detail and defining description of this particular city. This city does have some beautiful mountain views. Guess Where?

It was not always in this form - previously it was a series of unconnected smaller communities. Its coalescence was relatively recent - in fact its eastern stretches only coalesced within the past 35 years. It is so unique and new in form that even many who live in it do not recognize it as the megacity that it is and instead defer mentally to an earlier vanished age of separateness.
So a corncopia of mad-dash, hodge-podge, low-quality brik-a-brak?
