Urban fantasy vs epic fantasy

There seems to be a recent upswing in urban fantasy lately and I thought it would be good to discuss the charms and problems with urban fantasy. Do most of you prefer alternate reality stories in an urban fantasy settings or a magic must be hidden type story. What do you think?
