Funny you say that. If that was true, than neighbourhoods that offer such things would not be the most popular and in demand, and most expensive places in our cities to live.

I know this is not Europe, but I remember when Toronto was redoing their official city plan. The planners asked residents in the suburban areas what they wanted their suburban neighbourhoods to be like. The main thing people wanted, as for their suburban neighbourhoods to be like the inner city, where they could walk to shops, cafes, etc.
