More of the young and hip fight urban urge
Young, single people usually love the excitement of big cities, from the vibrant nightlife to the noisiness and frenzied pace of urban existence. They love it so much they’re willing to pay a stiff price for cramped quarters and communal living.
For some, the price is getting too steep. The draw of the bright lights and big cities is dimming now that housing costs have hit exorbitant heights. Some who grew up fantasizing about life in the "big city" are settling in less glamorous cities and even suburbs.
"For a lot of young people, especially growing up in the Northeast, there are two cities: New York and Boston," says Nick Lentino, 31, a native of western Massachusetts.
