Not in my backyard! No thank you.

Send them all to the Strip District to live in lofts.

My point, not everyone CAN live in the City, and not everyone WANTS to. To each his own.

No I understand.

All city boosters may seem alike, but really, the focus of my "urbanism" is trying to convince people who love the city and hate the suburbs that they don't need to leave the city and suffer for the sake of their kids. Someone who likes suburban life ain't ever gonna enjoy 80% of the city (and find the last 20% an inferior model of the real thing).

As for your daughter, I think financial reality would eventually set in. It can be hard to realize just how expensive a place can be if you don't actually foot the bill yourself (I'm assuming this is the case here). My New Yorker wife was a little resistant at first, but Pittsburgh has grown on her significantly to the point where she misses it when she's gone.
She's at the age where she can share a place and live on nothing. SF is a fun town and she has lots of friends here. I hope that she'll be more open to Pittsburgh after she visits.

Agree to disagree. I had biz today in N Huntingdon, Elizabeth, and Scottdale. Just great areas, and driving between them all the open space. In ain't that bad in the 'burbs n'at.

And if they DID live in the city, can you imagine what they'd charge for rent on Polish Hill?

Not yet pointsable, C. But soon.

They could raise the rent so high that SCR would have to move to the 'burbs!!!

Don't be silly. The only things the burbs have to offer is the Olive Garden, the Best Buy, the late-night food and the total lack of college student jaywalkers. Who needs that?
