New York is a city that never sleeps as any other big city in the world. But, what makes it so different? For me, what is truly unique are the vibrant stories behind peoples’ lives. But, for whatever it is worth, here’s one way you can spend 24 hours in New York. Believe it or not, even within one day to spare, you can still pack a lot in.
When I think of Chicago I envision the famous Wills Tower (formerly Sears Tower), the tallest building in the United States. One of the most popular places visited by thousands of people each year. The Willis Tower is a building that illustrates the consummate integration of architecture and engineering, and is one of the most recognizable landmarks in in the Chicago skyline and in the world. In Chicago’s downtown area alone, I would say there are around hundred public artworks. One that stood out to me the most is the “Cloud Gate”, also known as the “Bean”.
New York City has been through a tragedy in the past few years. The 9/11 attacks has made a giant impact on the United States. In spite of that event, Los Angeles is a famous city just as well as New York; they have many similarities and differences based on topics such as location, population, climate, history, and activities. Firstly, New York City is located in New York State; it lies on the Hudson River, and has a population of 18 million people. Los Angeles is located in California with a population of 3.5 million people.
But, like Chicago in the nineteenth century, Chongqing is revitalizing itself with explosive growth, into a “zone of high-rise glass-and-concrete office buildings, and neon-lit shopping malls.” Chongqing is considered the gateway to undeveloped lands, and is a center of commerce. The drive is from the vitality of the people who live there. It is not an aesthetically pleasing city. Pollution has become a serious issue, and industrial smog covers the city. Although there are many similarities between the development of Chicago and Chongqing, the speed and scale of Chongqing’s development is unprecedented and puts it in a class of its own.
Windshield Survey Summary and Reflection NUR 405 October 27. 2014 Windshield Survey Summary and Reflection Newburgh, New York is a community located approximately ninety minutes north of New York City and near the scenic Hudson River. In 2013, the population was 28,871 with an average age of 29 years old (“Newburgh, NY demographics”, 2014). The city is frequently in the local news, very rarely for good things, and most commonly for the increased crime rates. This area is interesting because the outskirts of the town are affluent with parks, large shopping centers and restaurants, large and beautifully maintained homes, farms, and medical centers with access to primary care providers and specialist.
Daniel Burnham had created some of America’s most famous structures, including the Flatiron Building in New York and Union Station in D.C.; his next task was to recreate a desolate Chicago to a revolutionized city of hope, by creating the famous Chicago World’s Fair in 1893 (also known as The World’s Columbian Exposition). This became a revelation for it attracted millions but also a devious and disturbing killing spree for Henry Holmes. It was during the 1890’s that Chicago had become America’s second populous city, due to the shift from an agricultural to an industrial society, drawing hundreds of thousands of foreign immigrants and rural dwellers to the city in search of work and a better lifestyle. Chicago wanted to prove to the world that the US was dominant in cultural, military and political force to the world by building the Chicago World’s Fair in response to the tall Eiffel Tower centered at the 1889 Paris World’s Fair. What better way to host a fair while celebrating the 400th anniversary of Christopher Columbus’s discovery of America.
One of the first similarities between the Giants and Yankees is their location. Both New York and San Francisco are major port cities in the United States. Not only do they both have mass amounts of trade commerce go through there everyday, but also a huge amount of people in a very small area. When one walks around the cities of New York and San Francisco, skyscrapers surround them while people and taxis fill the streets and sidewalks. New York has its infamous Times Square and San Francisco has its Union Square.
Even though they are both main streets and have large populations using them daily, they both are made and remade in different ways. City Road shows it caters for local people’s needs whereas Prince of Wales Road has a different clientele using the road for business and work during the day and a party scene at night. City Road has had more money spent on the road over the years, making the roads main markings stand out for everyone; unfortunately, Prince of Wales Road has
