About the Program
Ms. Gallagher argues that the recession and crash of the housing market have produced a permanent change in America's landscape: the rapid disappearance of the suburbs. The decline in marriage and birthrates, the rise of gasoline prices and liveliness of city life for young singles have all combined to push more of the population to make their homes inside the city limits. Ms. Gallagher discusses this growing trend with the author of Searching for Whitopia, Rich Benjamin.
