A Suburb in the City?

I’ve always noticed this really nice block of rowhomes on 13th and V. But when you take a closer look, you realize that there are no porches or stoops to hang out on. I thought to myself, man I need a haircut, then I thought to myself how is there no space to hang out front? So I wandered around back.

Whoa. What’s this? It’s like a whole gated community. It’s really quite nice, everyone has a parking garage and balcony. But I just can’t help but think that this takes away some of the joys of city living. Hanging out with your neighbors, people watching, etc. What do you think?
