Urban/Suburb/Run-Down-Sugar-Facility-No-One-Cares-About?

I live in a suburb. Apparently, in the UK, Suburbs are pretty poor. Here they're just a mix of everything. I hate the closed city. Too busy and dangerous. I live 5 minutes drive from this trainstation.

Urban. Look at my user info for geographical location. You can google if you want some info. My opinion: It's comfortable enough. Not awesome but better than most (Diplomat priviledges rock!).

On the hill. Garden behind the house which is hill too. Behind that a forest. Only two ways into gate before the house and you would need something like tank to come the other way.

I have a massive garden, which is a double plus.

Serio;4550522Apparently, in the UK, Suburbs are pretty poor.

The UK doesn't really have what most countries would consider 'suburbs'. There aren't a great deal of high-rise residential buildings compared to other countries, so you often find housing estates shoved into the middle of towns and cities. As with all things, some are poor, some are rich. Council estates sometimes fit the bill of what others consider to be suburbs (i.e. detatched or semi-detached houses only two or three stories high with driveways and private gardens), but obviously they aren't going to be as affluent as some privately-owned places.

I live in a fairly OK estate. Three cars, house is an OK size (not big enough, but OK), minimal crime, trees and grass everywhere. It's in the middle of town though - our corner shop consists of two retail parks and a town centre. Great place to grow up though, as there's a bowling alley, ice rink, cinema and swimming pool just down the road. And now that I've decided not to grow up, there are several trouble-free bars in the area.

I live in a shack, im my garden.

Fine, I live in a small house, in some kind of town/village. Lots of crappy buildings everywhere, soon to fall over.

There's a cafe infront of my house.

They have a nice tv.....Yeah, anyway, the view from here isn't that great, I can't see crap due to my neighbour's roof.

Wait, that's my roof :\ Yeah, I also have some kind of storage thing aparently, I never use it. It's pretty much empty. I use my garage for that. Small garden, but it'll do. It has some random pieces of concrete for sme reason.. There's a DIY store just 5 minutes from here(car wise), so that's pretty good, I guess.

I grew up in South Jamaica, Queens, and I lived in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn for about a year after high school. Hated both places. :(
