Settling down in a suburb community is a popular way to retreat from the hustle and bustle of city dwelling.

  suburb. The Columbia Encyclopedia, Sixth Edition. 2001-05
Suburbs have existed in various forms since antiquity, when cities typically were walled and the villages outside them were inferior in size and status.
However, the modern notion of the quiet, unspoiled outskirts as a retreat for the wealthy urbanite is in evidence as early as the 6th cent.
Migration from the central city to the suburbs was encouraged by a succession of technological advances in transportation throughout the 19th and well into the 20th cent.

 Levittown: Documents of an Ideal American Suburb
The critics were judging from an older, more elite standpoint-- they were, themselves, idealizing an American landscape inappropriate to Levitt, to his constituency, or to the moment in which Levittown came to be.
Theirs was a suburb devoted to upper-middle-class conservatism; they looked to precedents in the custom-built housing communities built before the war, some of them by Levitt and his family.
Levittowners, however, understood their new houses in the context of the ones they were leaving-- multi-unit brick, stone or frame apartment complexes within the boroughs, buildings that were themselves often laid out ten, twenty, thirty at a time in a relentless self-replication that is still visible along streets in Brooklyn, Queens, and even Manhattan.

  Suburb - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Suburbs are inhabited districts located either inside a town or city's outer rim or just outside its official limits (the term varies from country to country), or the outer elements of a conurbation.
Suburbs have typically grown in areas with an abundance of flat land near a large urban zone, usually with minimal traditions of citizens clustering together for defence behind fortified city walls, and with transport systems that allow commuting into more densely populated areas with higher levels of commerce.
Outer suburbs are the postal divisions found in the outer rings of the metropolitan areas, and usually lie within the boundaries of a separate municipality, such as the City of Fairfield.

 Suburb - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
The word "suburb" is derived from the Old French "sub(b)urbe" and ultimately from the Latin "suburbium," formed from "sub," meaning "under," and "urbs," meaning "city." (Note that urbs was pronounced urps.) The first recorded usage according to the Oxford English Dictionary comes from Wyclife, in 1380, where the form "subarbis" is used.
The growth of suburbs was initially facilitated by the development of zoning laws and more effective and accessible means of transport.

 The good life in suburb of McMansions - National - smh.com.au
In just five years the once invisible suburb has achieved a notoriety among certain self-appointed sophisticates as a crucible of crass taste.
And that is not even counting adjacent new suburbs such as Kellyville Ridge (across Windsor Road in Blacktown City Council), North Kellyville (a new release area to be developed over the next 15 years) or the so-called "hole in the doughnut" around Balmoral Road, which was finally zoned for 6000 new homes earlier this year.
But for all the remaining problems and the stigmatising of its name, residents are proud of their suburb.
