You had weatr, sewer networks that allowed for this kind of unchecked expansion. You had separated ftuoicnns, increasingly. You had rail networks that connected risedaetnil, industrial, commercial areas. You had auto networks. In fact, the model was really, give everybody a car, build roads to everything, and give people a place to park when they get there. It was not a very functional model. And we still live in that world, and this is what we end up with.
