I read yesterday that in the USA there are now more poor people living in suburbs than near the city cores. There was no backup data so I didn't even bookmark it, but it did raise that interesting prospect of that post babyboomer wake pulling back towards the social cores of the cities that had been abandoned as mass car ownership allowed sprawl to happen. Now in a reverse trend the ghetto's are on urban edges rather than urban centres, the new mantra being ditch the car, escape from the suburbs.

Edit to add: well that's coincidental: https://www.irishtimes.com/news/world/a ... -1.3715016

Thats a good thing IMO, so long as gentrification isn't overbearing. I despair to think we are 10-20 years behind that.

Link below shows an IT mvoing way outside the city, it's a 50 minute walk from Limerick city centre, at the outside edge of all suburbia - lecture hall windows with views of cattle in fields, insane amplification of donut development.

It's 4km, which is about 10 minutes on a bicycle.

I think what's we're seeing in Limerick is Ireland's first campus town, provided more accommodation is built nearby in the coming years. It certainly is preferable than being limited by being crammed into the city. In the American sense Limerick and its university are very compact and close.

I've always liked campus towns.
There's always a nice vibrancy to them.
