Because its extremely close to town, has a lot of well-priced and sized housing for 20-35 year olds, and Butler Street was, and now is again, a solid anchor for commercial/retail.
Stick to the boonies marsupial.[/quote]
Notwithstanding mr. browns inflamitory and nonsensical comments about kenny the kangaroo sticking to the boonies, this gentleman would like to make the following points:
1.) Although it is indeed extremely close to town, and this gentleman has zero experience commuting from lawrenceville into town, it seems hard to believe that a commute down butler, penn, or liberty would be very pleasant. Shorter than most? Yep. Congested? Probably. But kenny the kangaroo will admit this is purely speculation.
2.) Even if its close to town, its a pain in the arse to get to/from lawrenceville from pretty much anywhere else. And if your quick/easy solution to get somewhere is route 28, then god have mercy on your soul.
3.) The housing stock is cheaper than the housing stock on the souf side. But the housing stock on both the souf side and in lawrenceville stinks regardless of price. And this gentleman isnt referring to the homes in disrepair, its more about the fact that the houses just arent that attractive.
