Synopsis by Alice Day
The vision of suburbia has been realized in many places and this program showcases several examples. There have also been cases where plans developed into something less than perfect, but the dream of a house in a wooded setting is still pursued by many Americans. Pride of Place: Building the American Dream - Suburbs, Arcadia for Everyone looks at the first suburb, located in Llewellyn Park, NJ; Forest Hills, NY, and Oak Bluffs at Martha's Vineyard. For those who work in urban centers, a home on the outskirts of the city is an ideal living situation.
