Slaughter particularly emphasizes how streetcar suburbs and suburbs that are not car-dependent can offer a good option to people with a variety of amenities while not living in the central city. Slaughter focuses on Riverdale, Toronto as an example of this, pointing to its differing attributes and comparing to modern suburbs.
