    This is what the bottom pic looks like from a different angle. That pic is used to highlight the extremities of urban sprawl and capitalism when in reality it's just a freeway exit in rural Pennsylvania (Breezewood) among the Appalachian mountains. There are hundreds of these freeway exit 'towns' all over the country off the freeway. It's where you go to get gas, eat, and sleep when driving long distances. Because it's in the mountain the elevation changes of the terrain make it look worse than it is from that angle

      They're still fucking depressing. Give me one cozy town with history and identity for every 15 of these and it would be a better deal than the louisiana purchase.

      It’s not that inaccurate though. Go to any major US metro and what you’ll see is sprawling highways shooting off from it, lined with fast food and gas stations, and residential neighborhoods clustered around the highways.

        Breezewood is just the part where I-70 connects with I-76
        Its an interstate intersection in the middle of nowhere, what do you expect it to look like?

        I'm a truck driver in the U.S. It's literally vapid consumerism like pic. almost every town looks like that here lol

        There really aren't that many of them. Half the stuff in the original picture is closed today. But there is plenty of houses nearby if you look up Breezewood on a satellite map and zoom out, people do live there. This is a decent-sized freeway pit stop at the intersection of two major interstates and a US highway. Some freeway exits are just a couple gas stations. Or maybe a hotel with an apartment above the office that the owners live in.

    This is a pretty typical look for the center of a small town in USA
    Not cute, but not terrible looking either. Some are a bit more rundown than others, depending on the wealth.
    The OP is a stop on the interstate, not really a town. There might be a town nearby, but that isn't the town itself.

    I don't get your image. There aren't even that many and most of them are closed. Hardees, McDonalds, Pizza Hut, Starbucks, Bob Evans, Perkins, Taco Bell. Is that a lot? Hardees burned down some time after this pic and is out of frame in the original pic. Perkins is closed. Starbucks moved into the Quiznos building (Quiznos is gone) which they share with Sublicity and the original location is gone, but there is a Dunkin' Doughnuts near the spot. Taco Bell is closed. McDonalds, Pizza Hut, and Bob Evans (out of frame in the original pic) are still there. There is a Sheetz now. And there are some non-chains like the diner.

        You're just being a fucking retard. Having a few restaurants, stores, gas stations, and hotels at a freeway stop in the middle of nowhere is not the same as a cookie cutter subdivision with artificial grass built in the desert. The photographer used a long focal length to capture everything down the road all in a single shot, making the foreground appear closer than what's in the back and aided by the rising elevation because it's in the mountains. It's an illusion, not 'merica urban sprawl chain restaurant city. Now if this was International Drive down by Universal in Orlando, that would be a little different.

                That's what happens when the demand for people driving by on the interstate exceeds the actual population of the town.
                A lot of these rural towns have experienced population decline with people moving to cities, hence the dead main streets in many of them.
                That's the situation for rural America, every town other than college towns and mountain towns with tourism/vacation homes could be facing trouble, with an aging population. Young people just don't want to live in small towns anymore.

    That photo of Breezewood is funny. It's definitely an ugly main street. But I've been to that area of Pennsylvania many times. It's really beautiful. Most of it is just endless country roads and rolling hills. There is an awesome lake one exit down from Breezewood called Raystown Lake where you can rent a boat and cruise in solitude down the river. Seven Springs ski resort is like an hour up the road. There is an awesome rail trail an hour away in Paw Paw where you can bike through a mile long train tunnel. You can follow the trail 150 miles along the Potomac river and ride to Washington DC. There are campgrounds all along the trail. I've only done a short section of the trail, but I've always wanted to bike the whole thing.

    I think I was in Wisconsin or Michigan and I found a town that looked exactly like Silent Hill.

    The problem is that you’re asking Americans, and Americans think stop light towns with no sidewalks and a Wendy’s are comfy. The hard truth is that if you’re coming from Europe or similar, the only states you’ll find anything even remotely resembling what you’re looking for are the original colonies states and even those will be greatly disappointing.

      I’m glad you brought this up. Europe is cute but there isn’t any nature left. A mountain surrounded by farms and timberland isn’t nature. The trees are small, baby trees hardly 50 years old at most. These aren’t real forests, these are meant for timber harvest.

      Plus the economies in these small towns are ass, if you don’t inherit a business you will be a poor wagie forever. Plus unless you inherit land, a few walkable streets don’t make up for how cramped your world ends up being. Obviously this is still better than a “diverse” and unwalkable american city, but its still better to live in americans suburbs, exurbs, and rural areas where you can at least earn money and buy land.
