holly molly some of the places i live look like war zones now for real this country is in a scary place now
Exactly. I'll probably be in this house until I die, barring the neighborhood becoming a major crime zone, which is highly unlikely. Even in the early 90s when crime peaked, it largely didn't hit this area. If I had to leave NYC, I'd leave the country. Nowhere else I'd want to live in the US. I'm a megacity person. There's really only one megacity in the US. If I left, I'd probably look at London, Paris, Shanghai, Beijing, Tokyo, Seoul, maybe Hong Kong or Taipei, although the climate is a bit too warm for my tastes for those last two.Find a good place in a good neighborhood, not much point in moving.
The really old family homes in Washington, California, Oregon, Lousiana... I've got mixed feelings about.The places I have lived before, I left for good reason and have no reason to check on them so no I have not googled places I used to live.
It's not a bitter thing. It's just a "that was then, this is now" thing kinda like googling my first grade teacher or the boss at a former job.
