"The Utopia Where I Grew Up"

My parents bought a house on this street when I was five years old. This is a residential street with one and two family houses, meant for families with children. There are nice backyards and front yards. The front yards generally have a variety of flowers and grass. Most people have patios in part of the backyard, and nice trees that have now had 50 years to grow and mature. Schools are short distances away. Since I grew up, the neighborhood has become more ethnically Asian and more diverse. There are an interesting variety of restaurants, an ice cream parlor, drugstores, and large grocery. The food is affordable and good for a casual meal, but I wouldn't classify it as gourmet. This is definitely a middle class neighborhood, and for many, the place to buy a first home, because the prices are relatively inexpensive. There is a fair amount of traffic, because Utopia Parkway is one of the exits on the Long Island Expressway, but the street is not as noisy as most, because the stores are on streets nearby. The area is fairly safe, and people mingle because the block is conducive for kids to ride bikes and gather. I have lots of nice memories of the street, and with the name Utopia, you feel like your karma includes good forture.
