I prefer to live in suburbs but I would prefer to live in downtown Greenville vs living in or near Adams Morgan.
So now you're just changing the topic... you're personal preference is not relevant to the topic and there tons of younger people living in major urban centers all over the country. This really just circles back to you inferiority complex of smaller and/or southern cities when compared to larger or Northern or Western cities.

If a place is crazy expensive, i think walkability of it becomes less of a selling point.

ok well I could as easily accuse you of a superiority complex. That's why these kind of accusations are pointless, anybody can use that rhetoric.

I think perhaps we should believe other people are sincere in their positions.

Given all the northerners flowing into southern cities like Greenville and Charleston, I think they stack up well.

There are more people that live in a mile radius of DC, SF, NYC etc then Atl, Greenville, Charlotte etc... plenty of people make enough to live there and the ones that don't or want a different lifestyle will move and complain.

Ok.

Most people down here are happy not living downtown. It is an option for those who want to live downtown though.

Most people in Northern cities don't live in downtown either and it is also just an option... not sure what the point is.

How many people with kids don't own a car and walk everywhere or use a subway?

Well your point only seems to be more people live up north, which nobody disputes. Obviously there are less people in the downtown area of a smaller metro.

Right. People who like suburbs can live in suburbs. People who like the city can live in the city.

And?
