The Valley is nothing if not segmented — and then segmented within its segments. Take Scottsdale, for example. There’s Old Town, Arcadia, North Scottsdale, etc. Or what about the Southeast Valley? There’s Chandler, but also San Tan, Gilbert, Mesa, Tempe, and so on. Don’t even get me started on the Phoenix/Ahwatukee/Central Corridor/Downtown/Desert Ridge/West Side segmentation. […]
