Anyway, my point is that this "MY generation would live in a closet as long as it's above a subway stop!" line of thinking lasts up until about age 25, when the reality hits home that you can't live in a closet with 2 dogs and a baby. When people form families, they need more space. That's why suburbs exist in the first place.

I say all this having at one point lived in an urban townhouse with 2 dogs and a baby. Even though that lifestyle was fun in the short run, there are a hundred little things that make it incompatible with raising a family. It's a logistical thing, having to do with personal issues like money and transportation which are not connected to generational attitudes.
