Upscale In The South End

I think that there is a national significance to what is going on, and it’s a theory of mine that I’ve been developing now as I report on it and analyze the situation in urban America — is that increasingly, especially now that we’ve reached a peak oil crisis, there is a concerted move to move the middle class and the upper classes, that moved out to the suburbs back in the ‘60s and the ‘50s and the ‘70s, back into the cities, that there are many people who are living in the exurbs who don’t want to have to drive one-and-a-half hours to work every day in the city… to spend so much more money on gas.
