My new book, Vinyl Village, shows the good, the bad, and the ugly about my neighborhood, which is typical of American suburbia. When I conceived it, I’m a little ashamed to admit that I had a hit piece in mind. But the more I walked this neighborhood looking deeply at it, the more I realized that the developers and builders merely designed to an aesthetic, with certain tradeoffs, while working within some heavy constraints (such a the high-voltage power lines that cut through).

Indeed, some aspects of this neighborhood are quite lovely. They made the most of the retention ponds. Here’s one.

If you’d like a copy of Vinyl Village, it’s just $9.99. Check it out here.

      I don’t remember for sure, but I’m betting this was taken on an early evening walk.

      Not bad for what it is. It’s still not for me. I can’t wait to leave.
