Pretty much, and that's what I was trying to point out.

I don't want to say some of the thinking on ssp is a bubble, but it kinda is. We like urban areas, cities, and so we tend to have a bias towards city living. But when I say the "masses", the same is not the case.

They may like the experience of visiting or being in a city, but living is a different story. The average joe or mary.

In otherwords... the average American *

Exhibit A: Reality




This is not the average American below!

Of all the numerous reasons why I choose to live in the city, access to nightclubs is definitely not one of them.

Arguing over who are "real Americans" is kind of a dead-end. Why can't both be? And why group people into narrow stereotypes?

Good news, you don't have to live there!

Again, the fact that people are willing to pay more to live in a certain place means demand exists.
