People with homes like that don't have kids

Screw the children, 90% of those homes would kill me within 6 months if I was given access to vodka.

Am I the only one who read that headline in Sterling Archer's voice?

When I was 12 (a long long time ago) my mother would let my friend and I go to NYC to go the NYC public library.   This trip consisted of 60 miles on the LIRR, followed by either a hike through Manhattan or an adventure filled ride on the subway.   Did it lots in the summer, in spite of, among other things, riots.

Nobody thought anything of it, including the train conductor who nearly had a heart attack when he saw us climbing on the outside of the train (like they do now in India).

Now you would be arrested for suggesting such a thing.

Good times.

God, I would so  love to live in "Mad Men" digs like these.

Anyone who would own these homes is smart (and successful) enough to know better than have any kids in the first place.

I think it's hilarious that the author of TFA seems to think that the types of people who can afford homes like that are also the types of people to not have nannies watching their kids 24/7.

My aunt had this GORGEOUS 3 story home built into a hill.  Only the front of the house was exposed.  When they added a garage, they couldn't embed it entirely, so there was a 4-5 foot drop from the roof to the ground.  My brother & I used to jump off it all the time and nobody called DYFS on our parents.

My grandparents had a huge wrap-around deck on the 2nd floor of their A-frame home built in the 70's.  I remember it only had the barest of railings yet we managed to not die when playing on it.

Red arrows show the direction of travel of children's bodies

Well, that's not overly dramatic at all. Nope.

Meh, we used to get on our garage roof all the time via my bedroom window.  Kids are kids, they'll find danger no matter how safe you try to make things.

I will admit that, as a kid, I would have jumped off quite a few of those ledges--repeatedly.
