Some people like living in a community, places where everyone knows everyone. Where they walk out, know the goings on of their neighbours, where everyone knows everyone.
I very much appreciate the exact opposite: living in a place that's busy enough that I don't know my neighbours (beyond saying hi when passing them), and being able to go out and disappear in the river that is the street outside.
I wonder how often people in either of these categories forget that the other exists.
