I live in what used to be country/rural in the foothills of the Cascade mountains but now housing developments popped everywhere and in the last 8 years the population has almost doubled from 9,000 to about 17,000 so now most people pretty much consider it a suburb/highway town since its on a main highway that leads over the mountains to the eastern part of Washington state.

I live in the rural central PA mountains. 20 miles from the nearest "city". I live in a small town (we don't even have our own post office) though there are other small towns scattered about. The nearest red light is about 9 miles away.

Ok, you got me beat!

I'm about 2.5 miles from the closest red light. That light was just put up though, before that it was about the same as you, 7-8 miles away.

A long forgotten tiny town in the north of the Netherlands very close to Germany. Now I realize how bad I want to move to another place :lol:

I live in a urban environment, a city called Rotterdam in the Netherlands.

I live on the second floor a wee bit away from the corner, the house with the yellow chair on the balcony. This picture is kind of old, taken just after they tilled the ground, its all green now.

The view from the balcony, the tree in front of it has sadly died and was removed. Not being a fan of direct sunlight, it is missed.

Some picture of the larger street the one i actually live on is attached to. Lots of shops including a huge pet store, pub, post office, newspaper/sigarette whatever store, bakery and whatnot.

Second picture isn't very flattering, they had removed some crappy post wwII housing and thought it would be a good idea to place huge dice in the field. These fields like my "back yard" are now all a pretty green.

Finally a picture of the subway/eltrain station that i use every schoolday.

The weather really makes it look like a depressing place to live, doesn't it? :D

I currently live on campus at Oakland University in Michigan, which is somewhere a fairly sparse suburban area. My home, however, is in Hamtramck, Michigan, which is literally surrounded by the city of Detroit.

I currently live in what used to be the rural suburbs with distant cow fields and orange trees. Of course, like everything else in Florida, it is now turning into a sprawling suburban area with, and I kid you not, two new malls being built within 5 miles of each other.

Google Citrus Park, FL and you will get an idea of what my area is going to be like in about 5 years.
