Written by Katie Hintz-Zambrano

For various reasons, moving from the city to the suburbs is something many families consider. And in our profile of Lindsey Caldwell—a.k.a. DJ Lindsey—we get an honest look into the trade-offs. For starters, there’s her incredibly beautiful, freshly built home with a big backyard (flip through our slides for some major clean-lines inspiration!). But on the other hand, the Long Island-based mama has found herself holed up in a surprisingly conservative, often racist and sexist community that she’s eager to shield her children—Henry, 6, and Amel, 10 months—from. Below, Lindsey gets real about all of that, plus going from 1 to 2 kids, career fluctuations in a time when “everyone’s a DJ,” and slowing down from her former crazy-paced city life.
