Homes on the borderline

We live on the city-edge of an inner ring suburb. Our houses along this block face the city. Some call our houses "the moat". Others call them the "front line" or "the buffer". Across the street from us (in the city) is a university. Aha! Yes, hence the title of the blog! Oy vey, she *finally* got to the point, you say.

So, anyway, tonight we are attending our first city council meeting of the suburb of which we belong to help them help us and help the city. We've been besieged by students renting houses in this residential neighborhood. We don't mind students, but we don't like their loud parties and beer cans, and it's affecting our QOL and our housing values. So, we'll see what happens.........

  1. Ahhh, this reads so familiar. We have a house filled with college baseball players just around the corner from us. They have not mowed their lawn since they moved in LAST YEAR.

    Thanks for checking in on my blog and for the great book recommendations.
