When living in a city such as New York traffic moves about as fast as a person walking briskly to their destination; therefore you don’t find too many people who own cars in the city. On the other hand you have places like Phoenix who’s transit system does not run as beneficial because they don’t have enough density in the city for it to do so. Jeffrey Zupan states the fact that in order for a city to get a transit system there has to be an obvious need for it, and unfortunately Phoenix is not one of those places. With a transit system as detailed and well planned out as New York’s not too many people are eager to jump into their cars to drive anywhere. There for cutting down on the consumption of fuel and less traffic jams.

Because parking space and availability is limited in an area that is as urban as Paris is, the most popular form of transport is the Metro underground train. Although this form of travel is cheap, fast and practical, trying to navigate your way to your destination is a nightmare as a visitor because of the sheer amount of people making their way through the stations. The trains themselves were very helpful, with a flashing light over and a voiceover announcing the station – not unlike the London underground. Another positive of this citywide transport is that it helps reduce the possible amount of pollution that Paris would have if everybody used cars to travel. Land space in Paris is limited because of the amount of accommodation needed to house all of the people that live there and the amount of shops/businesses that are situated there.
The percentage of privately owned housing in Fishwick is 60.5 and in Longton it is 92.7.

This is caused when a city’s population increases at a faster rate than the growth of economic and industrial development, which results in a strain on resources. This is a problem which has greatly affected Sao Paulo. The population of Sao Paulo has doubled from 6 million in 1970 to nearly 12 million today, with a current population density of 9000 people per square kilometre. As a result of this vast increase in population, the city is unable to support its entire population, leading to the development of favelas. Favelas, known as slums in other parts of the world, are generally in very poor condition, with no water supply, plumbing or electricity.
Being an island, Puerto Rico is smaller than the size of Connecticut however much larger than Delaware or Rhode Island individually or, even if combined as one single state.

The majority of cases occur in minority groups, particularly recently arrived immigrants from countries with high endemicity who often congregate in deprived communities within wealthy cities. In the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, people from the Indian subcontinent and sub-Saharan Africa living in inner cities have higher rates of TB than the general population; particularly during the first years after arriving in the country, (WHO 2008). Within the developed world immigration is the greatest factor contributing to the increase in cases. In England 60% of cases are in ethnic minority groups, which comprise only 5% of the population. Of these individuals from the Indian Subcontinent form the majority, ( online ref), and one of the explanations attributed to this surged of tuberculosis in the capital of London is not only due to the intensification of immigrants living in the cities, but the living environments in which they find themselves , overcrowding, poorly ventilated housing, malnutrition, smoking, stress, social deprivation and poor social capital.

So there are many huge skyscrapers to contain people. The second similarity is that both of them have huge rivers around them.
