What's your definition of "Village"?
Original post made by Wondering, Another Palo Alto neighborhood, on Jun 3, 2013
When I think of village, I think remote out of the way place with old houses with roses or ivy growing up the wall and thatched roofs, poor amenities, a place where you need a car to get anywhere, old people, no children, gossip and for those who read and watch mysteries, murder (Miss Marple and Midsommer Murders). So why is village appearing on our new developments? Alma Village and San Antonio Village come to mind. Does anyone else think some of these new developments are misnamed as villages?
