I recently cruised 135th Street between Roe and Pflumm for the first time. While I realize it's fashionable to deride the new development, doing so would be disingenuous of me. The truth is that I see the attraction. The athletic fields are spiffy. The restaurants are undoubtedly fabulous. The houses are handsome. The tens of thousands of people who have drifted to the southwestern fringes of the metropolis are living in style. The tractors now working the few remaining fields adjacent to these outlying suburbs will soon be mere memories.
