Living in the suburbs like picrel is the housing equivalent of working in a cubicle farm.

Living in the suburbs like picrel is the housing equivalent of working in a cubicle farm. Why do people opt for this instead of living in more urban housing or more rural places?

      Work for the weekend, live to die.

      More rural = further out from work in the city
      More urban = no yard, smaller living space, more expensive

      Yes, but more urban means you can walk to so many different ameneties. I hate having to drive everywhere. My ideal type of housing would be one of the houses in a chinatown or some newly gentrified area. Walk to get all the yummy food, bike to work, generally be way more satisfied.

    Rural places have no infrastructure, urban places have the wrong kinds of people.

    Let me see so I should pay more to live in an actual shithole urban area with
    >much smaller living space
    >hobo camp immediately outside of front door
    >car gets broken into nightly
    >smells like shit - garbage, graffiti and feces everywhere
    >nowhere to take my dog to play
    >no garage to work on my car
    >pay for parking literally everywhere including your one curbside parking space you have to share with a crackhead tent
    >hipsters everywhere and everything costs more
    >choose between car traffic so bad it takes literal hours to get somewhere a mile or two away or public transit with crazies, criminals and homeless

    Few of my friends do this shit and pay triple what I do for my 3200sqft suburban house with detached shop for their studio in downtown area where they get mugged regularly. But at least they can walk to a shitty bodega or hipster brewery without using their car that gets keyed 15 times a day!

      Imagine if there were just semi-feral women roaming the streets and you could just capture them and fuck them legally because they are considered more animal than human haha

    Modern suburbs are depressing and soulless. Older suburbs with spaced out houses, trees and bushes everywhere, and small natural un-perfectly manicured lawns are very relaxing.

      My home suburb has hills, lakes, very nice parks with long wooded trails, and shopping within walking distance. I can see why some would prefer it.

        It sounds nice. You get the peace of suburban living, the scenery of a slightly more rural area, and some of the convenience of an urban or commercial area.

    I prefer urban now, but some suburbs and exurbs can be very nice, and much more affordable. It's all compromises. Most single people of any age would be better off in a city. I'm really liking Minneapolis even though my suburb was also kinda nice. It actually had some walkability. I may have stayed if I were still a gamer and didnt't have other issues there.

    Broken up suburbs are pretty great. It's only when you get into hellish clone houses and grid patterns that it gets miserable. Down here there's lots of farmland and winding roads breaking up the neighborhoods and spacing everything out. It's all disjointed and there's a lot of intact woods. If you ask nicely you can easily get permission to use/hunt some of the expansive private land. And even if you live in one of the smaller gridded areas, there's a park.and said free land about a 5 minute walk away

    it's a status symbol that we've been conditioned to desire by decades of propaganda. you get your wife, dog, 2.5 kids, and your white picket fence, and you've won the American dream. please ignore that it doesn't actually make people happy.

      It can make people happy, if they have a social life and hobbies that make use of all the space indoors and out. Houses also act as de facto social safety nets in the U.S.

      Are there better investment vehicles? Is it worth the opportunity cost of not accessing the city as easily?

      A recipe for misery is buying a house before you have a family. Maybe not if you're a gaymer with no interest in city activities or meeting anyone who isn't also a fat and ugly furry. Those folx are very disproportionately NOT from cities. It's like suburbs cause them

    I just want a house with a garage. Since I don't have a partner I cannot afford one

      You probably could if you went rural enough, like an hour out. Some spend the length of a disney movie each way driving between their mcmansion and job. Do need your own garage, or would a condo with underground parking be satisfactory?

        I live in the UK. Rural houses have massively inflated prices from the rich buying second houses. Houses with garages are considered to be expensive houses or family houses - something you need to be rich or have a dual income to afford.
        I just want somewhere to put my motorbike without it being stolen. Pic related is the kind of house you can afford to rent if you live on your own. My bike would be gone by the end of the week in these areas

          That looks kinda nice. In the US, almost everything lowrise is made mostly of wood and drywall and we often don't have sidewalks.

            If you own anything at all that is "kind of nice" your house will be broken into. Your car will be stolen. You cannot own anything in this area, you cannot be at home 24/7 to defend everything you own.
            These areas are not nice at all. That is the reality of living in a (un)working class terraced estate

                Yes, I grew up on an estate. Was burgled once, they kicked through the front door and made off with the bicycle and shit in the entrance. They stole some things from the front garden when they could.
                Parent's van broken into a few times. It said DAIRY on the side what the actual fuck did they think would be in there? Tools? S&M milking equipment?
                Moving out of that area improved my childhood a lot. Fuck that place, never going back. Police don't do anything here

    When don't they just put some stores in there or workplaces and make it an actually viable community. Oh, because the automobile industrial complex rules America.

    I was born deep into the suburbs east of Phoenix Arizona and still live here with my parents at 24. I am disabled so I can't work a normal job and am a NEET. Honestly I think the suburbs are soulless hellholes. It takes me thirty minutes at least to drive to the nearest patch of native desert. At least there is a small downtown area not to far from me but it's still far to walk and is easier to drive because of car centered planning.

    if youre in youre 20s suburb might not be for you. its more for people who are ready to have a family or slow down.

      One of the best things about living in a city is not having to deal with fearful white people. Everyone here is cute and nice instead of fat and grouchy.

    I had a classic suburban childhood and it was magnificent, it's a great place to be a kid if you have loving parents. That can be said about a lot of places though.
