Not too long ago, I was in a condo here in Salem Oregon and was thinking about whether or not I was an urban dweller. When I lived in Portland, the Pearl District was a mess of abandoned and broken down warehouses. You could hear a rat scurry across the street as no cars were around for what seemed like miles. Fast forward to today where the Pearl District is a bustling, thriving area of Portland.
Salem has never been a cosmopolitan city, and when the downtown condos went in, I had to go an take a look. The layout of the condos on Church Street is quite nice, and they are nicely done. As I walked around the condo, I longed for my backyard and my space. Now, compared to this little New York gem, the condos at Church Street are mammoth.
So, do any of you think that you could live in a place that small?
