74. I consider it urban
people who don't know the area think we're a suburb. But our city existed before the "big" city 10 miles away. Being to the west, we've got that "car dependent" situation which can feel more urban than NYC or other east coast/central urban centers. But the city I'm in has good bike paths, sidewalks (I lived in a suburb on Long Island that had not sidewalks - I thought it was the weirdest thing), and decent public transportation (which they are starting to cut due to the economy just as it was starting to get good). I'm about a mile from work, about 1.5 miles from downtown, and a mile from the closest grocery store.
