If money, friends and family were no issue, I'd probably choose the back country, but since all are an issue for me creating co-housing in downtown San Diego looks like a truly good idea to me, for these reasons: + our downtown is truly diverse ethnically and economically. I long for the 'aliveness' of such a mix + there is now a good supermarket downtown and a constant sort of farmer's market with low cost vegies and other stuff + excellent access to whatever public transportation we have + close to our poor central library and to the proposed new library + close to the bay and it's cooling breezes + truly good access to our freeway system + walking distance to various great spots on the bay, including two bayside parks. + close to the county's oldest hardware store -- and it's a good one And yes, when I prowl around on foot it is noisy and dirty, but it's also interesting and gritty. If we get our group together and actually build/rehab downtown I envision pockets of quiet and grace interfacing with the excitement/convenience of the downtown.
