Streetsblog: "Sprawl Madness: Two Houses Share Backyard, Separated by 7 Miles of Roads"

Link to web site

"Just how absurd have American development patterns become over the past few decades?
"Behold: Two houses with adjoining backyards in suburban Orlando. If you want to travel the streets from point A on Anna Catherine Drive to point B on Summer Rain Drive, which are only 50 feet apart, you’ll have to go a minimum of seven miles. The trip would take almost twenty minutes in a car, according to Google Maps.
"Windy street patterns, full of cul-de-sacs and circles, have become such a ubiquitous feature of the suburbs that they mostly escape remark.
But disconnected streets have many insidious consequences for the environment, public health, and social equity."
