Urban neighborhoods gaining popularity among the young

An April 16, 2014 New York Times article entitled Suburbs Try to Prevent an Exodus as Young Adults Move to Cities and Stay discusses findings from a recent report indicating that rather than moving back to the suburbs after a period in the city, many suburban-raised young people are choosing to linger in the city. "Younger adults are becoming more drawn to denser, more compact urban environments that offer a number of amenities within walking distance of where they live," Says Christopher Niedt, academic director of the National Center for Suburban Studies at Hofstra University. Sounds like urban neighborhoods are on the rise.
