Summary
Filmed in a wide range of suburban and metropolitan areas around the United States, this program presents a dynamic and thought-provoking exploration of American suburbia, including its genesis and history, its dramatic political and social evolution, and its developmental challenges. Viewers are guided through specific issues facing the nation's suburban landscape, including problems in infrastructure, transportation, housing, economic development, environmental sustainability, and community revitalization. Interviews with leading policy experts offer remarkable insight into the grey areas that separate - or connect, depending on one's point of view - America's cities and rural regions.
