This is the spectrum:
U.K. cities ------------ Boston -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Atlanta
There probably is a degree of difference in the form of sprawl between Boston and Atlanta; Boston has older regional centres and a more extensive commuter rail network and that tends to concentrate density. Yet the urban form of Boston is still far closer to Atlanta than what you’d find in the UK, because of seven decades of incredibly restrictive planning regulations. It’s why you can travel far shorter distances from the centre of British cities and end up in a completely rural landscape.
