Went into San Jose, and income diversity is stark there

Was the by the campus of San Jose State. University.  Lots of small houses and shops there, with people hanging out on their porch to escape the heat.  I met a few people along the street who I thought were friendly and great.  Just a mile or two away, the streets were cleaner and wider, there were huge (sprawling) office complexes and more than a few luxury cars.  I always find it strange that I like the more urban (smaller and older shops) areas more than the sprawling suburbs.  That has always been true for me – I love being around genuine people and don’t like the phony feeling of upscale hubs.
