Peter Pan housing
 n.— «Patrick Hare, a Washington, D.C., urban planner, calls that dream “Peter Pan housing,” designed for people who never grow old. Their Never-Never Land is the nation’s endless spread of suburbs and exurbs where real-life laws and codes only reinforce the illusion that America is eternally, expansively young. Suburbia was never conceived for an aging populace of fixed-income nondrivers.» —“A New Kind of Old Folks’ Home” by Barbara Flanagan San Francisco Chronicle Apr. 21, 1991.
