Many of the responses to Barry's post have hit on the same set of circumstances: tightly-packed, inner urban areas with diverse populations lead to community interaction. My own experience confirms this. I live in an inner urban area where there is a staggering cross section of cultures, ages and income groups packed into a handful of streets. We have a video and newpaper shop run by Indians, a grocers run by Pakistanis, a grocers and deli run by Italians, and one of the best and most stylish Chinese restaurants in Edinburgh. At the end of the street is a brewery which produces one of the best Scottish ales and uses its storage area, when empty, to hold weekly ceilidhs. A year ago we got the police to close our street and held a street party for no reason other than it was summer.

Sure, there are problems living in the city: casual crime and vandalism (my car has been damaged no less than six times while parked in the street), pollution, congestion, neighbours' cats, the urban fox that destroys rubbish bins. I wouldn't change it though because in the end it's about people.
