Would you move to a small town if it was an option for you?

There was a very popular TV sitcom in the USA which ran from 1965 to 1971 called “Green Acres.” It starred Eddie Albert and Eva Gabor as a married couple who leave New York City and move to a small town full of unusual characters by the name of Hooterville. The series was actually a spin-off from another sitcom called “Petticoat Junction” set in the same town.

Much of the humor in the show came from the fact that, although the husband hated living in New York and wanted desperately to move to the country, the wife had never lived anywhere other than New York and couldn’t conceive of living in the country.

  1. I loved watching the show for the humor. I was born and raised in NYC but loved the summers I spent in the Catskill Mountains of NY state. I would love to live in a small town where everyone knows everyone else. I would be great for my nervousness. Right now I live in Daytona Beach, Florida and it is not a small town but a resort town and it is alright before tourist season because there are quiet streets where you could walk and meet no one and that is what I like. For that reason I loved the years I spent in Riga, Latvia because out in the suburbs close to the city I could walk dirt roads and enjoy forests and such.
