Yeah, it's purely an asset thing. I mean the schools being great, the crime low, the comparative beauty, the quiet streets, cultural diversity, amazing food and proximity to the greatest city on earth aside, it's really nothing worthwhile but a real estate venture. I mean look at the taxes and the Buttafuoco's?
