The Three Rs

It's undoubtedly an imperfect approach to a life-altering decision, but many people, myself included, live where we do for one reason. We study standardized test scores and select a home within the boundaries of the most successful public schools. When administrators tinker with the system because of budgetary demands or changing demographics, residents panic. Without this concern for education, after all, we'd probably live in midtown.

    Define midtown.

    I anticipated a stinging tirade from you, BGO. Here's more ammo.

    I was thinking of the enormous territory between Roe/18th Street Expressway on the west, 71 on the east, 18th Street on the north and 47th on the south.

    In other words, it's the area I'd probably live in without the need to consider schools.

    How is asking to define midtown a stinging tirade? I lived in 'midtown' for about 20 years, 1970-1990, by your definition. If I had the income or savings, I'd be retired in Oaxaca City right now.

    I just figured/hoped you were building a case. You know I love you.

    I thought midtown extended south to 63rd. No?

    My rules and definitions don't necessarily conform to reality, Steve.
