Sub-urbia. The key word here is SUB. It is SUB par to living in the actual city. It is a dreary existance of living right beside a house exactly like yours, for cheap. Sure, living in an apartment isn't all that better, but hey, at least Downtown isn't a boring mindless existance on a day by day basis.
An evil massive sprawl created after the second world war to compensate veterans that many people found attractive until they realized it was too late, but after buying too many appliances and object could no longer afford to return to the city.

A reason people should move to the country.
Usually covered in ranch houses, many built on concrete slabs (permanently rendering the land they sit on useless) and almost always landscaped using the builder's special, the adjoining wooded areas have often been removed after bored teenagers get caught going there to drink beer and smoke pot.

Suburbia can be located within a central city (depending on what is encompased within it's boundaries) or some other part of a metropolitan area.
suburbia will be seen as the sorry mistake it's always been.
Most of the ranch houses and patio homes will be reused as livestock pens.
Also known as: drive in utopia, land of mandatory motoring, national automobile slum, United Parking Lot of America (UPL), or better yet, hell on earth.
