I have never been much for suburban living. Anyone who knows me, knows that I separate the City of Toronto into two… North of Eglinton (NOE) and South of Eglinton (SOE).

Unless someone has died, I never like to go NOE. Of course, I travel NOE to get to the cottage. And, occasionally I must head north to get to a meeting. Being able to walk to two grocery stores, multiple movie-theatres, the Art Gallery, fine dining, the Four Seasons Ballet, and multiple other destinations is only one small aspect of the feeling of living downtown… the feeling of busy streets, the noises, the smells… they all add to the urban life.

While I am not alone in my feelings, some people love the ‘burbs. The National Post is writing a three part series on the benefits of living in suburbia. The Post leads their series by saying, “Lampooned in movies, TV and books, the suburbs have always been maligned, but is it as bad as urbanites think?”

Check out The National Post’s three part series:

Superbia: Rated family friendly (Part 1 of 3)
Superbia: 6:30 a.m. (Part 2 of 3)
Part 3 – Coming soon

Without a doubt I prefer my small condo living to a big house with a yard, and a 2-hour commute. Where do you fit into this ongoing City Living debate?
