Because it's a small world and people never leave their neighborhood. It will always be that way for as long as people are human and stupid.

One thing to remember is that these two cities are 10-15 minutes from each other depending on where you may wind up in them.
Agreed. I've fallen in love with downtown Norfolk, myself, just moving back from NY last month. I'm thinking of moving to Icon or Metro on Granby apartments as they are affordable but seem to offer lots of higher end amenities and a city experience in a secure building right in the downtown scene.
