The neighborhood was a fun short read. I really liked the idea of having to live in a toxic waist land in order for the average family to buy a home. This story doesn’t say, but suggests a nuclear accident or attack of some kind leaving sections unlivable. I really like the concept of this story and especially like the ending…very funny.
