One definition that I found says a district, usually residential, that is immediately adjacent to the city. That's why I wondered about Tybee.

However, you could certainly have a suburban-like atmosphere within certain neighborhoods, but that wouldn't make them a suburb. Once that area becomes part of the city, it's no longer a 'burb

Georgetown has some great apartment complexes, and there are a FEW, but very few on Abercorn. Sorry, I don't know the names, but Spanish Villas is NOT one

That sounds right. Let's go with that!

Yeah, I-95 and 204 (generally all the way to Armstrong Atlantic State Univ), I'd consider Georgetown. My husband and I lived in Georgetown Crossings Apartments (King George Blvd @ 204/Abercorn), which are nice enough, but lots of college kids and young military families in that area.

Also, that was named THE most dangerous intersection in Savannah this year. I wouldn't recommend the area only because of the traffic. I worked in Port Wentworth and in Bloomingdale and it's absolutely horrific comign home in the afternoons.

I wouldn't recommend living off Abercorn at all in that area for that reason alone. Personally, I thought the stretch of Abercorn (farther up) closer to Downtown Savannah was MUCH nicer! (Although much pricier, I'm sure.) It seems to have the feel I think the poster was going for.

I'm not positive but, I think a suburb is any neighborhood or a mainly residential development outside the economic center (jobs), which is not necessarily defined by the city limits. Interesting subject.
Not a dis to your idea, just a critique,
tell me what ya think
Wanderin' import

I believe Savannah has two economic centers in my opinion, which are downtown and the southside. In downtown growth is dense and slow, but on the southside, growth is rapid with two malls and many commercial boxes that have large, spacious parking lots. And on the southside blocks are bigger and the streets are much wider, like highways. Anything in between downtown and the southside (Abercorn is where much of the activity is concentrated), the rest is suburban or unusable land...which a swamp within the city limits is definatley not urban.
