Suburbia is starting to die?

While scanning through numerous articles about suburban life, I came over a few articles and posts that american dream of living in a nice suburban house actually is not a dream anymore. Well, at least for a small, but constantly growing part of society. Authors basically support this idea of decreasing amount of car users in generation Y (by the way, I did not know that we are called generation Y, that’s something new for me!) and increasing per cent of suburban poor, which means, according to the authors, that higher educated or “smarter” or anyhow “better” people tend to exchange suburbs to a better & compact city life. Of course, the authors admit that there will always remain those, who, despite anything, will adore suburban life.

Well, could be true, could be just a nicely played with a few statistical figures, but good to know.

And as for us, in Lithuania, I don’t think that suburbia is going to die soon, we’re just in the middle of creating it. Still need some time..
