These contrived neighborhood names don't bother me at all. It makes me feel a little more content living in my rusted out single wide, when all my neighbors across the street (in the new phase of the development) live in much nicer rusted out double wides.

By the way, to the operators of the forum, can we remove the word "retirement"? It is so low class that us gentlepeople of leisure would be retiring from something. It implies that we had to work at some point instead of living a life of pure leisure.

Friends of ours were laughing at a line from, I believe, Downton Abbey, (we've never seen the show so I can't be certain)........it appears that there's one character, a lawyer, who states that "He can visit next weekend", (since he has to work during the week), to which an old dowager asks perplexedly "What's a weekend?"

How about "The Pines at East Nowhere"


FYI, East Nowhere is just east of the middle of Nowhere.

Yes, Downton Abbey quote.

To even acknowledge that you understand the concept of a week-end shows that you at least associate with the lower classes.

Actually East Nowhere sounds romantic to my ears, like it belongs in Narnia.

the Pines at East Nowhere do exist

Those trees were knee high when I moved into this house back in 1984. The previous owners had planted them. In many ways, their growth has served as a gauge for my life here. It's all good.

I once heard that these "elite properties" are named after whatever natural features they had destroyed.

"eagle heights"..... Yeah, before you built the complex there.

I noticed that when I first moved to the US - all these street and place names with quaint "Little House On The Prairie" sounding names, but the reality was a little different. For instance, places like "Walnut Creek" and streets like "Orange Grove Ave". Concrete where old-time Americana used to be

Back in the 70's we were searching to buy a piece of land. DH found some acreage on Poverty Ridge. That name made me squeamish. Fortunately, it didn't work out.

Besides, we say “the La Brea Tar Pits,” even though that means “the the tar tar pits.”
they were going to call it "The Tar Pits at La Brea", but the focus groups shot it down...said it sounded pretentious.

Reminds me of the BBS tag line:

Suburbia: Where they cut down all the trees and then name streets after them.
