Would You Rather Start off in the City or Suburbs? [POLL]

If you were starting out on your own would you choose to live in the city or suburbs? I believe everyone, at some point in their life, should live in a city. It doesn’t really matter which one, although a major one would be preferred.

I grew up in Union City, which is one of the most densely populated cities in the world. I lived in an Italian Hispanic neighborhood and it definitely made me who I am. Everything and everyone is at your fingertips in the city. You can come and go as you please without having to plan a trip, and everything seems to be there when you need it.

To me, the suburbs were places you go to sleep until you’re back in the city. You move to the suburbs after you’ve lived in the city, and there’s nothing wrong with that.

The 70’s saw a mass migration out of the cities. Now, gas prices are over $3.00 a gallon, tolls and property taxes are high, and the city is looking more and more attractive every day. Areas that were once run down in the 70’s are fixed up today. Jobs are there, people are there. There are job opportunities in the suburbs and you can live there if you want without ever having to go to the city. But would you really want to?

If you had your choice between living in the city or living in the suburbs, which would you choose?
