“City residents disproportionately are more likely than people living in other types of communities to say they would prefer to live in a place other than a city,” Morin says. “Fewer than half of all city residents say there is no better place to live than in a city.”
A smaller proportion of women express the desire to live in the nation’s largest cities. “Women are less drawn to big cities,” says Robert Lang, co-director of the Metropolitan Institute at Virginia Tech. “It could be safety.”
Gee, you think?
I’m not saying I want to move to the suburbs (well, certain suburbs…), by why would any woman want to surround herself with screaming crack addicts, street-dwelling schizophrenics, posing gang-bangers, drug dealers, and the sorts of people that invade your personal space on every street corner because you’re an easy target and probably easily cowed? If I lived by myself? Without even a decent shopping district to compensate? No thank you.
Curtsy: Instapundit, who also points out (“wait, I thought urban life was authentic and satisfying”) it might be the crappy local government (ahh, Democrats).
