I found this Ideabook on Houzz.com this morning. If you’ve never been to that website you’re really missing out. But anyway this Ideabook features aerial view of different suburban neighborhoods (“suburban sprawl”) throughout the United States. It’s very interesting to see your neighborhood from a different point of view. You can also see the logic (and in some cases lack thereof) in the design of these subdivisions. More after the jump.

For the full article click here. I’ve included a few pictures here so you can see what they’re talking about. Maybe it’s just me but this is really fascinating!
