For over 5 years now I've lived in Westfield Gardens in Reno. I've loved the quietness of the neighborhood as it has limited access and does not act as a connector between other neighborhoods. I don't even mind the Reno High School cannon going off (a lot) during fall football games. It's conveniently close to downtown and other shopping, as well as the river which I frequent every morning on my walks, while also being just far enough away to not have to worry about flooding.
The actual history behind this development is a bit more circumspect as you'll see from watching the above video which I only recently discovered. The fairly explicit racism from the FHA policies is apparent. A good watch for anyone interested in the neighborhood and for the people interested in urban development in this country.
For over 12 Years I wrote the Reno Rambler Blog covering everything from Bicycle Advocacy, Reno Politics, Popular Culture, and my experiences as a long-time cyclist.
