Rising personal wealth, and the rise of the automobile allowed people to leave the urban cores of our cities, which were dirty, marred with crime, and seen as undesirable.

Now, we are pretty much stuck with this battle of the urbanites/suburbanites.
I have never heard a single suburbanite disparaging someone living in the urban core. I often hear it the other way around.

That said, my house was infill in an area with houses built before I was born so I didn’t add to any sprawl lol.
