JP wants to move up after “winning” a spam lottery and dreams of Panther Creek. And while he’s just funnin’ us, it does bring something to mind. Panther Creek seems to be the iconic subdivision of wealth in Springfield.
It is true that homes there cost a lot, way more than I can afford, but as a place to live it really isn’t any big deal. In fact, even if I could (maybe even especially if I could) afford to buy a house there, I wouldn’t. It’s in a terrible location right off of Route 4 and it’s rather dull to look at. It has no trees of any size. For that money, go to Leland Grove or build your own house somewhere nice away from the city. Hell, I’d rather have one of the big old homes in Hawthorne Place (south Holmes, Lowell, Whittier between South Grand and Laurel) over a PC house.
Sorry, Panther Creek just ain’t all that. Time to get a new residential upper class icon for the city.
And just for fun, if you were as rich as JP wishes he were, where in or near Springfield would you live?
