depends where, you get some mix. real cities are not burbs which are more segregated by car. anything that is designed around the car will segregate people more. pedestrians coexist with others.classical_Liberal wrote: ↑Mon Sep 07, 2020 2:33 pmThey tend to arrange themselves socio-economically. Even smaller towns @alphaville would not consider cities have the working class/first gen immigrant neighborhoods. Those are my "go to" places. They tend to be more skill/social economy based, much friendlier and open to interactions. Add to that generally cheaper housing. On the three ladder system these are the L3-2/G4 neighborhoods.
cities are fine. people are used to getting along with strangers. it's way safer there than among "deliverance" typesclassical_Liberal wrote: ↑Mon Sep 07, 2020 2:33 pmParamilitary compound is an extreme. Big cities have too much population density, and in the US too many opposing groups (us/them mentality). They seem like a powder keg to me vs lower population density, smaller cities. But I think we've had this discussion before
small towns also don't get much attention and/or armed forces protection. if they burn, they burn.
new york city with all its population density is below 1 covid infection rate now. i'd go today if work/earnings allowed. lovely place full of friendly people. sure, the shock of closing retail will hurt the economy, but more room for me when the rich leave for connecticut. the 70s new york arts scene was something else.
