Suburbia For Sale

American Dream Foreclosed

Whether a split level or a McMansion the American home has been the very embodiment of the American Dream. Once the mark of achievement, the suburban home was a solid investment, the guarantee of a secure future.

Now row after row of identical houses, with identical sky-high mortgages and identical For Sales signs grace their unkempt suburban  lawns.

The forlorn For Sale sign beckoning the nonexistent buyer has become the lawn ornament of our time, as ubiquitous as the Pink Flamingo was in the 1950’s.
