    I like many places in my town. One is the area around Notre Dame with the medieval buildings behind it:

    The other one is the little village, which has been surrounded by the ever-growing town:

    Do you have a story/memory about why you created this area Z?

    A personal note that isn’t specifically about my town, but all township towns with “little villages” of identical little houses:
    I live in one of these real-life villages, adjoining a slightly larger “company” town (that even has foundaries lol). At the end of WWII, the company built this village for its employees returning from the war. There were only four designs for the whole development, sometimes built as flipped, mirror images. Over the years, most have been added on to and modified but you can still she the resemblances.
    Does anyone know the song: Little boxes on the hillside, Little boxes made of ticky-tacky, Little boxes on the hillside, And they all look just the same!

    I’ve been living most of my life in Frankfurt/Main, in a suburb, which was once a three hours walk from the city (now it’s 20 minutes by public transport). It was amazing to be in a village and a big city at the same time. Then I have been working in the municipal archive in Frankfurt/Main for some years and had to do quite a lot with town development, structural and historical. I found it very interesting to find different layers of development and microcosms in a big town. In the end Frankfurt is an accumulation of small villages, and the inhabitants hold their traditions dear.

    Thanks for the background to your little village surrounded by town Z. That really does sound unusual and very special . Also how interesting to work IRL in the municipal archive in Frankfurt/Main. Very fascinating .

    As sung by Pete Seeger?. My parents had an LP from him. I heard this often as child. The melody was directly in my ears when I saw the lyrics

    Thanks, I looked it up on YouTube. I recognize it more sung by the woman he mentions in the vid I watched, Malvina Reynolds.
