"This is just speculation on my part, but it's been widely reported that the
suburbs are now increasingly the places where lower income folks can afford
to live and not in the urban core: thus recent immigrants, people arriving
from other regions of the US, the working class, and minorities of various
kinds are entering the collar communities. The characteristic "mix" of art
bohemia scenes might now be developing in the burbs? Can anyone report
evidence of this in the US? Elsewhere?"

I think the burbs of the big cities in the US are definitely drawing
immigrants and working class folks, but I think the young artists of today
are more likely to move to cities that are emerging as new 'bohemian scenes'
than settle for the burbs. Portland is certainly a perfect example of that,
and I think Philadelphia, Baltimore, Pittsburgh fit that bill as well. I
don't know how artists make it in cities like New York or San Francisco- I
suppose people have alternate forms of income, as the cost of living in
those places is insane.
