Why Corporate America Is Leaving the Suburbs for the City

from the New York Times:

Now, corporate America is moving in the other direction.

In June, McDonald’s joined a long list of companies that are returning to downtown Chicago from suburbs like Oak Brook, Northfield and Schaumburg.

an urban and downtown-type haunt

is that the young mass

don’t want to see grass

(unless it’s baked in a croissant)
