Fuel prices forcing a retreat from exurbia back into the core
Interesting article from the NY Times focusing on many in the Denver area rethinking the idea of living in the far exurbs, primarily due to the high cost of transportation. The nice thing about walking to work is that it costs nothing. Many are now coming around to understand this concept. Of course, not everyone can walk to work, and there is a tradeoff between extra space and living closer to the city core. But, many are finding the balance shifting back to less space as the more attractive choice.
