I love feel good stories involving someone ditching uber-suburbia for the life of an urban walkable neighborhood. The Zillow Blog has a great article on such a story—moving from a huge house in Texas sprawl to a condo high-rise in Downtown Seattle. Article author Sabra Davis writes about her experiences in Seattle that are (not surprisingly) similar to my experiences here in Downtown Sacramento.
“Instead of feeling anonymous in the big city, we”ve grown to feel welcomed and wanted, and we”ve become friendlier, too. We”ve discovered that most people, whatever their walk of life, are pretty darn nice,” wrote Ms. Davis. I can definitely relate. Except she mentions that she and her husband eat out 85% of the time. I probably eat in 85% of the time, despite the great restaurants here. If I didn’t, I’d gain too much weight. See my comments about her article on the blog post. Photo courtesy of Zillow Blog.
