I have always lived on the mountain, but I spent a lot of time in my youth taking the bus downtown and enjoying the downtown vibe (still do). I've always enjoyed walking around downtown (where things don't look as bland and homogeneous as some areas of the mountain can), where there are many interesting independently owned businesses. I'm always shocked by my friends who are fellow suburbanites that hold a very different view of the downtown than I do, painting it as a desolate, scary, dangerous place. But in the same breath, they will say that they never go down there. It really defies logic. How can feel so strongly opinionated about a place you never go?! I think it was some American mayor who said you can't be a suburb of nothing, and I couldn't agree more. I only wish it were easier to convince other suburbanites that this were true.
