New Berlin, WInew berlin is a bore
New Berlin is way overrated. It is by far the most boring city/neighborhood i've ever lived or been in. It is conservative, uptight and dreary.
The apartments are overpriced and tasteless. The roads about rip your vehicle apart being rutted up and potholed. Traffic is a headace, people rarely seem to know what a red light means and if at all possible, avoid those silly, senseless little roundabouts they just put it. Too many have yet to figure out how to use them. Forget about bicycling, there are no routes so between the motorists and the chewed up asphalt, it's way too dangerous.
You can forget about taking a leisurely stroll around New Berlin. There are no sidewalks!, other than a few stretches where all the "chains", banks, and city buildings are located. Yeah, that's relaxing.
There is no public trasportation. No bus lines, no taxi cabs other than for the elderly. If you need a cab, you must call one from a bordering city. So there isn't much to go for here anyway, except MrsSippies Coffee or the library. Of course, if you like these sort of things, there is bowling, dealing with that pesky, undersized roundabout to get to the movie theater which only plays commercial films, limited options for dining or the local bars.
There are only a few "chain" stores located is small strip malls and those are all extremely disappointing. Again, if you like that sort of thing.
There are pockets of little residential areas that are quite attractive. These are very small, but wooded with mature trees and quiet. The houses are older ranch or split style with lots of character. To break away from the mundane blah blah of New Berlin, I take these little jaunts to my destinations outside this city.
Yes, New Berlin is but a ho hum layover or retirement community.
