Tyler Cowen looks at the trend.

A few decades ago the choice for most people was pretty simple: either the city or the suburbs. The city was exciting but a little dangerous. The suburbs were comfortable but bland. These days our suburbs and cities are converging, which is narrowing our lifestyle choices.

‘Narrowing’? I’d say rather ‘broadening’, since it is becoming more and more easy to have the lifestyle of one’s choice no matter where one lives.
