Well then why not discuss these differences? Or if it really is North American centric, then keep it specific to the North American forums. But I don't see why you need to do that. I think some interesting stuff can come out of compare and contrast discussions between say, a Hong Kong New Town and a New York suburb.A bit north american centric topic isn't it?
The definition of a suburb and it's impact on the collective mind vary greatly from place to place.
Would it not be interesting to contrast and compare suburbs instead of always having to put big cities on the discussion block? I mean really, this forum caters most to city-dwellers. The discussions on this site really do apply to those that live in the city. Suburbanites come to this website because they love big buildings and urbanity, but don't necessarily want to live among the hustle and bustle.True, but I would say suburbs have more negatives than cities, but that also depends on the city, and also depends on the suburb, there are just so many kinds of both.
