What Bert Has To Say About Phoenix-Mesa-Scottsdale Metro Area

Originally a resort city, Phoenix has grown phenomenally in the past 40 years into a full-scale urban center- largely made possible by the advent of air-conditioning. The Phoenix metropolitan area covers over 1,000 square miles. Downtown, which is fairly modest for a city its size, features a few skyscrapers, the capitol, government offices, and a few quality museums. Surrounding downtown are several large and fairly distinct city-suburbs, mostly built on a sprawling grid, in some cases separated by low hills. These include the large middle-class suburbs of Peoria, Mesa, Chandler, and Glendale; upscale Scottsdale; and the college area of Tempe which serves as home to Arizona State University. All areas are modern and generally lacking in historic interest, but keep in mind that Phoenix only had 100,000 residents in 1950.
