The appeal of suburban homes and communities, and the American dream as homeownership, is waning and the evidence is everywhere, said Leigh Gallagher, author of “The End of the Suburbs: Where the American Dream is Moving,” in an interview with The Atlantic Cities. “Every stone I turned over yielded these beautiful flowers of evidence,” she said.
“Somewhere along the way the American dream morphed from being a dream, an opportunity, to being a house,” Gallagher told the news site. “That’s no longer the case for a lot of people.”
