everyone has different tastes and interests.
Agreed, which is why saying someone who moves to the Northshore must has bad taste is kinda silly.
Whether you are interested in Suburban life or not is not really relevant. Alot of people are, and the Northshore not only offers alot of it, it offers plenty of non Suburban life as well. It is an example of diversity when selecting a home in safe areas, with good schools, suburbia or not.
Those who travel to Baton Rouge frequently (seaosn ticket holders) or go to the Gulf Coast/beach frequently (families) appreciate the ease of both of the drives. From my home to where I park on LSU's campus is have exactly 5 stop signs and two lights and both the lights are in Baton Rouge. Again, it doesn't have to matter to you, or everyone for it to be a bonus for alot of people.
Being close to the heart of Metairie (coming from Mandeville, Covington, parts of Lacombe, Madisonville) or NO east (Slidell, parts of Lacombe, Pearl River) isn't that NOLA East or Metairie is the destination, just an example that once you are there, you are pretty close to wherever you want/need to go. From Lakeside, few places in New Orleans are further than 20/25 minutes away.
The culture that NOLA offers doesn't cease to exist when you move to the Northshore.
Yes. Yes, it does.
Please do explain how those who live on the Northshore cannot experience the culture that is offered in New Orleans?
