Recently, Salon took a look at why we get emotionally attached to the views from our windows (and why the 1 percent is willing to shell out millions just to look at a park). Open Salon bloggers posted some views of their own -- a fabulous vista from the 22nd floor in Miami, a peek at the sky in Oakland, a view of convenience (and strange beauty) in Berlin. These views are where the city creeps into our private worlds, and each one has its own emotional resonance that reflects the city it looks at.
