Something struck me about your first sentence - I didn't grow up in a development. I grew up in a town.

We played with the kids across the alley.

I think a lot of suburban building just isn't designed for kids to be outside in. One of my pet peeves is those wide, gently curving streets - they're designed for cars, not people. Their very tranquility encourages drivers to zone out at the beginning and end of their commute, and they drive faster than visibility really allows.

Of course, there are both chickens and eggs here.
