This comparative case study provides detailed analysis on how businesses are faring in five suburban and urban communities. In addition to examining differences and commonalities between these distinct neighborhoods, the authors attempted to make comparisons between neighborhoods with differing socioeconomic characteristics. The paper concludes that the survival of new urbanist developments depends on how well they foster sustainable environments for businesses within the developments.
