    Makes me think of all the "work, live, play" communities they built around metro Atlanta, people that work in them can't afford to live in them and never could.

    Of course there are ever changing landscapes to the housing market in every city.

    That doesn't mean there aren't urban neighborhoods where one can live cheaply, often being "revitalized". The recent mild surge in home prices is something to applaud, after so many lost so much prior. If you work in Beverly Hills don't pretend/expect to be able to reside there.

    LOL

      Oh, does it ever get old telling us how things used to be, how great your generation had it, and how little you notice things've changed? Meanwhile, there's not a state in the U.S. where you can reasonably afford a one bedroom apartment with only one full-time job at the federal minimum wage. Even if American workers organize and get the federal minimum wage raised, we're still screwed. Spare us your glass-half-rainbows lectures. Reality, today, is most Americans make less than $30k per year. Forty-five million Americans are in poverty. How many are in whatever hallucinatory prosperous pre-racial free market America you live in?

        ," there's not a state in the U.S. where you can reasonably afford a one bedroom apartment with only one full-time job at the federal minimum wage."...... Never was...This article and my comment is about: "The Middle Class", a kind of nebulous definition of income from about 45K to 150K.

        Obama delivered us from the "Great Recession",

        haven't you heard?

          Let me see if I remember how this went from last time around the mulberry bush. Your story goes that President Obama destroyed the world's economy the year before he became president, and no doubt you'll find he's responsible for everything the next president does as well. The president's something of a whipping boy for you, I notice. Funny how that is.

              I'm guessing you haven't had to look for an apartment in an American city lately. I live on the West Coast. In San Jose, there are engineers that make vast sums in salary and live out of their cars because there's no place to rent. In San Francisco, Oakland, Portland and Seattle, ordinary people not being able to live in the cities they grew up in anymore is very real. Or the cities next to them. Or the cities next to those. Nevermind where their jobs are.

              If you've somehow managed not to pick up on any of the day-to-day realities around economic inequality in the U.S., let me suggest you brace yourself for some pushback when you find yourself condescending so far as to tell us we can't live in Beverly Hills.

              @AdelleChattre -

              As you so like to demand,

              "cites please",..... not one off/unsubstantiated anecdotes/tales.........Are you/we discussing affordability or availability? Clarify.

              Keep on wandering down whatever path you please, related or not, no matter.;-)

              " I live on the West Coast. In San Jose, there are engineers that make vast sums in salary and live out of their cars because there's no place to rent."

              Oh , in the time since I initiated this particular comment, I researched "rentals" in and near San Jose. Seems there are hundreds. You are a sad/bad liar and no point in furthering this, for the lack of a better word, discourse.

Here are some other snaps you may like...
