Me either. I have an aunt and several cousins who live in Chesapeake and none of them are even remotely close to well to do. Their neighborhood is extremely modest and I would say most of the homes were probably built before the mid 1970’s at least. I would struggle to categorize it as even upper middle class, let alone affluent. We didn’t even go by any fancy neighborhoods on the way to their homes when visiting. Now, I do not know what the real estate prices are like there, but I have a general idea of my family’s income so I know they could not afford to buy a home there if it was expensive.Really? I had not realized that about Chesapeake, VA. Considering the law was enacted in 1967, I wonder if that was the case then.
