But don’t we all, at one time or another (particularly if we have children 🙂 )?

But that’s not what this post is about. I’m talking about “urban living” coming to Los Angeles. (Well, actually, in this case, Long Beach.) Actually, these things have been popping up here-and-there for the last few years. But nothing has gained what we might term as “critical mass,” because “Los Angeles” – the sprawling polyglot that it is, has no real “urban center.”

I love this development – mostly because I love the architecture of the ’20s and ’30s. This is classic Greek revival. But this, art deco, craftsman – it’s all good. I would prefer my “loft” be on a hilltop overlooking the coast – about five or ten miles away. But even barren homesites like that within commuting distance of any west coast city are over a million dollars these days.
