This was my first Meetup, and I enjoyed the conversation. There were many directions that the conversation could have taken and, while we were able to cover a few, this is a discussion that needs to continue.

I think that on the Northeast Corridor, the cities are generally merging with one another. The "country" will be almost exactly like that of W.Penn's "fair country town" where there will be urban activity punctuated by, in this case, "larger" country parks" between them. Picture Philadelphia as a megacity like NYC with larger "Squares" and I think you'll see what I mean. As a "city kid" I wouldn't notice it, but the suburbanites and the Amish are going to get quite a shock. Oh course, I won't live to see it-except in its rudimentary functioning.
