Why Cities Are Growing Faster Than Suburbs | Développement durable et efficacité énergétique | Scoop.it
It's not just millennials - families and baby boomers are also leaving their suburban homes.

For the first time in a century, America’s largest cities are growing faster than their suburbs. An Associated Press story widely covered in the media yesterday, including in Time, said the findings from new 2011 census estimates reveal a “dramatic switch” from the previous pattern of suburban dominance.
