Blogs aren’t specifically designed for dialog, so this might be a bit awkward, but I envision this post as more of a discussion rather than a normal post. Save for this: Figured it out
Streetfaerie: If you are going to live in this neighborhood then plan on actually becoming a part of it. How offensive that you want to live in our community but see it as some bombed out place that you happened to find a good deal in.
Why a priori should a person who moves into a neighborhood be interested in becoming a part of the community? Why is a disinterested move-in be an offensive concept? Do people have a right to choose a place to live independent of the community they involve themselves in?
