How to use "Suburb" in context?

The word suburb has been around since at least the early 1700s, and it likely comes from the Latin word suburbium, which means "a small town near a larger one." In the United States, the word typically referred to rural settlements outside of major cities. But as suburban areas began to develop in the early 20th century, the word began to be used to describe the growing populations and housing complexes located within the boundaries of larger cities.

Nowadays, the word suburbs can be used to describe any densely populated residential area outside of a city.
