The domination of the streetscape by garages is common in drive-only suburbs. There are no "eyes on the street" from inside the houses—so the connection with neighbors is tenuous. What you don't see in this photo—because it is out of the scope of the lens—is the actual street, which is wide and lit by night with cobra lamps.
"Garagescapes" are depressing and incompatible with the idea of community. People use automatic garage openers and disappear in their houses. The street is not a welcoming public space and it usually leads to nothing worthwhile unless you are in a car.
