Tod, sometimes when people live in an Urban environment it is because they choose to. They enjoy the diversity and the engery. If you had read my earlier post I have lived in the suburbs. I have lived in Boulder Colorado, Vail Colorado, Long Island North Shore Beach community, LIC in Queens, Astoria in Queens, Nutley and Morristown in NJ and all over Manhattan.

It is your opinion that suburbs are better apparently but there are certain people who find them boring and homogenic. To each his own. To refer to an area that has a lot of cars due to high rise buildings and lack of garage space as "Ghetto" is insulting and unintelligent in my opinion.

I have "seen" both sides and can't say one is better but I would not insult those who chose to live in the suburbs if that is what they prefer.

come on - the ghetto stuff is just people being funny - it has nothing to due with socio economic status or race - these days it is just a term like "Thats Hot" and "Sic"

Right. So where would all these cars be coming from then? People who live in the suburbs? What, they drive their cars to the ghetto to park in front of peoples ghetto homes just to annoy them??

Default No worries

You must not have any worries to be so petty as worry about someone else's car or property. Maybe you are jealous or envious of your neighbors for having space and cars. Get over it and leave people alone. People like you and their bitching is the reason neighborhoods have gone to crap with their ordinances. For example, me, my daddy, and all my family grew up maintaining there own autos, but now most of them have to take the auto to a shop just to get the oil changed. Simple because people like you didn't like to see their neighbor on his property working on his automobile. You need to REALLY listen the song by Montgomery Gentry titled " What Do You Think About That". Listen closely about the dirt and keep your nose on your property!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My neighbor a few doors down is the worst, they have 5 cars and a tiny driveway. Their cars are all over the place. When I think of my situation, I say it could be worse.
NJ Tina, I had this happen, a neighbor parked a big bulky work truck in front of my house. It totally blocked my view and I had trouble seeing the kids who go back and forth across the street between houses (my son and his friends). I wrote him a very polite letter stating that although I realize this is a public street, could he please park by the corner instead where there is plenty of room for safety reasons as I could not see the children coming and going. He never did it again, although I am not sure whether the letter had anything to do with it, or the fact that it is closer/more convenient for him to park near the corner....but if he had kept doing it...I had fantasies of sneaking out after dark and slashing his tires!!! He he he...and btw, to whoever said you had to take parking where you could get it, I could understand if there wasn't any available in front of your own house or if driveways were consistently small in the neighborhood, but the OP was talking about an area where there was plenty of driveway space and parking for those people. I didn't know the guy with the big work truck, but if I knew my neighbor I would say something...although I didn't with the first neighbors who lived across the street because the son was a drug dealer and I didn't want to get involved talking about it with them...I knew they were eventually moving to North Carolina (without the son) and that it was only a matter of time before he was back in jail. But it went on for the first several years that I lived here with them and it was really annoying when they parked in front of my house and not their own, and we needed the spot because we had to park one behind the other in our driveway and in order to get out each morning one person had to move their car (we were not allowed to park in the street overnight, but they didn't care and left the cars out all the time and just kept paying occasional parking tickets, because after all, drug dealing is lots of tax free $$$$ and never seems to suffer from downturns in the economy...hmmm....maybe I'm in the wrong business after all.....).
