LOL! What's your definition of remote? You simply don't understand that most high-rise cities in the US stopped expanding their borders over 75 years ago when a switch was made to suburbanization. So these "big" houses can easily be within 8 miles of a city center. Whereas in China these areas would most likely be filled with high-rise units as your cities are still in the expanding phase. People in the US can even hop on a bike and ride to the center of a city.Note that I use "big" instead of big, the problem with the US is, besides the jew bankers, most people in the US could only afford "big" house in remote region.
The total of our top 10 largest populated cities isn't even 6% of our population. We've all moved to these "big" houses in the suburbs. Even in cities (other than NYC) most people live in houses...they just don't have as much land as they are crowded together.
