Kids These Days!

A story on Wall Street Journal's real estate blog today firmly notes that many Gen-Y'ers (those born between 1980 and 2000) want to distance themselves as much as possible from mum and pop in terms of how they live: no "formal living rooms, soaker bathtubs, dependence on a car." Suburbanites in this demographic have a few small requests, among them, fitness and game rooms, outdoor space—without the lawn mowing, please!—and rooms to hold baby showers. Meanwhile, apartment dwellers seek movie-screening rooms and rooftop pools. Distance yourself all you want, but it's a good thing pop's still writing the checks. [WSJ]
