One thing I love when I travel to the east coast--especially New England--is the churches. They are everywhere: along the narrow streets, in the middle of the business buildings in big cities, right in the middle of the lives people live. In the west, churches are around houses, in neighborhoods, but more separate and spread out. Not as right there as I feel they are in New England. I love the white churches, small and neighborly, but I also love the stone churches, so stately and proud.
