Reviving dead shopping malls and disconnected suburbs
from The Times-Picayune
Old assumptions about life in the suburbs are mostly wrong these days. Big families don't live there anymore. Two-thirds of suburban households are children-free. The aging baby boomers there feel disconnected. The privacy once offered by a cozy cul-de-sac to raise a family isn't so alluring anymore. The flight of the wealthy from overcrowded cities has been reversed. For 10 years now, more Americans in poverty live in the suburbs than in cities.
