Would you live on the suburbs?
Edge wasn't mentioned; edge implies knife edge, on which one might imagine being situated, but not in (the edge).


Heather B.

Indeed, one would live in the suburbs as they are considered a part of a town.  However, one would live on the edge, fringe or the outskirts of town.   


Heather B.

For example:  
Aloha is a suburb of Portland and there is an Intel campus in the suburbs.  
If the campus was on the edge of Aloha, one would say that it is on the outskirts of town.
