Suburbs Can Woo City People By Being More City-Like

In his August 14, 2020 column, BNN Bloomberg’s Noah Smith discusses America’s changing urban landscape. He posits that in order to be attractive places to live, suburbs will have to look more city-like.

He references Our Towns, which notes one of the key hallmarks of successful, thriving places is a vibrant downtown. Smith goes on to recommend suburbs offer more than one such area, including one filled with bars and nightlife, another with quieter shopping villages for older residents, and others.
