I really wish this photo was a joke...but it's not.
Why would anyone ever want to live like this? I realize I'm a little drastic with my only-dense-city-living ideals, but there are still plenty of alternatives to my ideals that are practical. Grandview, Bexley, Upper Arlington...they're all great areas with beautiful houses that are just minutes from the city. But this kind of development? It happens 30 miles outside of the central city. Its homogeneity is painful. Its impracticality is nearly palpable. I just don't get why people would willfully choose to live like this.
