    Link: Price Is No Object--I Want To Live Here! - Does anyone know where this is? It`s got to be America from the style of houses, but I need to know...

    Imagine the commute to work! Judging by the craziness, probably some oil-rich company...

    My parents live in a neighborhood like this. It is nice for the people on the outside, but those deeper into the canals have a long slow boat ride to their houses, and there isn`t much privacy (you can see clearly into the houses across the canal from you).

    I wouldn`t assume this is the USA. That Palmtree Island in Dubai is properties like this as well.

    why in the world would you want to live on that ugly fake island in an over priced house that is pushed up against others???

    that place is downright ugly.

    no thanks. give me a nice sized house in the hills away from everyone else. perfect.

    You have to drive in circles for 45 minutes to get home. God forbid you have a boat at those docks and have to travel to the outside of the maze.

    i don`t even have to research to know where that is... and those empty lots you see there will probably STAY empty... UAE utopia is way too expensive and who the hell wants to live under muslim laws that govern WORSE than Nazi Germany laws of the 40`s.

    Apparently not Dubai, but Galveston, Tex., according to the Website of aerial photographer Alex MacLean.
    His comment: "Harborwalk is a planned waterfront community built on wetlands on the western coast of Galveston Bay. In the coming century this land will be some of the most vulnerable on the Texas coast to sea-level rise, yet developers continue to construct low-lying homes to cash in on waterfront property values."

    One big tidal surge and all those houses will be gone! Yeah, great idea.

    Thanks for the map-link @Mike1973! I see that nearby "Tiki Island" has a similar design, and it`s full!

    Or maybe, 5Cats, that is the protection that they instated to protect from flooding, and this is during a flood!

    Okay, maybe not

    Good luck getting home after a night out. Could be pain in the ass to navigate while blissfully drunk. OTOH, if you can afford to live there, you most probably afford a taxi or private driver.
