Green Acres

Quiet, friendly and close to schools

When Catherine Shen moved into her Green Acres home in 2008, she was welcomed with open arms by the other residents who she described as "polite and courteous." The block and potluck parties held by the neighborhood association have played a big part in the development of community and a sense of belonging.

I'm not surprised that the residents love their underground utilities. I wonder why the city never moved forward with that pilot project. I would be all for it.

Green Acres is a wonderful, close neighborhood, which is more low-key and friendly than any other neighborhood I've lived in across Palo Alto. People usually move in and stay, so home sales are rare. It's one of the only parts of town where kids can easily walk to elementary, middle, and high schools.

I prefer to think of Palo Alto as Merriam-Websters dictionary defines things.

neighborhood as: : a section of a town or city
neighbors as: fellow man

Why worry what side of the street one lives on? We are all part of this city, this county, this state, this country, this world. Everyone deserves to be heard from and valued.

Sorry this was in response to a post that was removed before I finished and submitted the above post so the context of the post is less meaningful.
