Suburbs losing appeal, American dream changing

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.”
