2 Bigger and Better: The Growth of Suburbs Two Main Reasons for Suburban Growth More people had more money More people had more money Transportation was made easier Transportation was made easier

3 More People With More Money After WWII, the country went through an economic boom. This placed the majority of the people in the middle class. Due to the increase in population, the government made it easier to buy or build a house in the suburbs so they did not to have to go through the pricey process of updating buildings in the cites. $

4 A Family Car Due to Henry Ford’s ability to mass produce automobiles the average family was able to purchase a family car With increased fears of the Cold War, President Eisenhower created a system of interstate highways in order to move people and supplies quickly around the country. Both of these factors made it easier to commute from a suburb to a city for work everyday, essentially creating a “bedroom community” The Ease of Transportation

5 Why the Suburbs “White Flight” After WWII, many African Americans began establishing homes in urban areas. Many of the urban areas’ wealthy whites moved from the cities to the outlying suburbs in order to keep the segregated feeling of the past. “Greener and Cleaner” Suburbs offered a healthier living environment away from the pollution from city factories

6 Life Styles of the Suburbs The idea of a “nuclear family” was viewed as normal. The father would work outside the home while the mother would stay at home, cooking, cleaning, and raising the children. The idea of “father knows best” was established. This meant that the head male figure of the household was in charge of practically everything. Levittown Mass-produced housing community built by the Levitt Company

8 Leaving an Impact Greater Feeling of “Freedom” Having a house in the suburbs gave American families financial freedom and freedom from depending on someone for a home.
