Urban sprawl

I ran across this excellent photo essay of the far western suburbs of the Twin Cities. It's a very instructive picture of what urban (well, rural) sprawl looks like. Notice the large lots, in particular!

Good luck finding a sidewalk in there.

People were villagers before city dwellers. It is too bad that the new American village is such an isolating experience. People don't know their neighbors and the traditional concept of community doesn't exist. Unlike, say Germany, where villages and small town life are very important - AND - exist in relative harmony with major urban centers like Munich, Berlin, Hamburg and others.
