Hated Sidewalks, Unwanted Renters
"Antipathy toward sidewalks is a common feature of suburban living...Some property owners see sidewalks as conduits for strangers and renters. They signify suburban sprawl in their once-rural neighborhood. Sidewalk fans say the paths promote neighborliness and fitness. They also save lives, keeping walkers, joggers and children off busy roads."
