Review of Sunnyvale, California

Quality of life reduction
Star Rating - 5/3/2018
I've lived here for 40 years. While the weather is fabulous, For the past ten years of high density housing mostly needed to house thousands of a young up coming tech work force and the tyranny of the tech companies concentrated in my neighborhood has diminished life quality in the entire South Bay Area. What is a negative off set of this we have near grid lock traffic far past work day hours. There are lines and crowds everywhere. The strain of the over crowding has negatively impacted infrastructure specifically water quality. I feel quite sad. The new huge Apple buildings recently built, in my neighborhood will be soon filled with thousands more to join us in the streets and roads. Not to mention the COL cost continuous increase. It was once a quiet wonderful place to live.
