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.
25? You're giving too much credit. With this generation, it's maybe 30-35 before they decide they want to grow up.
