I do all the time. I live in the same neighborhood now that I grew up in. I am now 37 years old and the change is unreal.
On the street over from mine when I grew up there was some old trails we rode our bikes on and well as motorcycles. I could get lost back there, the trails went on for ever and it was really dark because it was totally covered in thick trees. At least 3-04 times a week we went riding back there.. Now all thr trees have been leveled by bull dozers and there is no sign of what was once there.
We also had thick trees on the main road that lead to our house, the yhave now gave way for an Indian casino and bingo hall. and a small strip mall.
The neighborhood that I live in right now used to be a gravel pit when I was a kid. I was on the side of a hill aon an old 2 lane road.
Now it is filled with over 200 homes and roads.
On the far end of town we have one of the last drive-in movie theaters in the northwest. The city talks about tearing it down so they can build a 4 lane road so people can get from up on the hill to the valley freeway. They managed to put the road in and leave the drive-in alone....so far. I went to these drive-in when I was not even 5 years old. Early 1970s... I can remember seeing the Aristicats and other Disney movies there. We played on the swings and teeter-totter down under the screen before the start of the movie. Then we would pile into the back of our station wagon for the show. In highschool we went every thursday night as it was only $5 for a car load.
Even today it is only $5 a head for 2 shows. Me and the wife try to go at least 2-3 times a summer as we know that it is only a matter of time before they are gone..
Here is an article about it...valley drive in
It seems like every time I turn around some thing new is going up. It kind of makes me sick.
