Young Families Are Reinvigorating Older Suburbs

" A generation ago, many of America's older suburbs struggled to maintain their vitality. Then came the 1990s, when urban crime rates plummeted and the allure of cities became apparent again. That rejuvenation also reinvigorated the older suburbs, with their proximity to business centers, as well as the flash and culture that cities provide. "
