The Emerald Necklace “We want a ground to which people may easily go when the day’s work is done, and where they may stroll for an hour, seeing, hearing, and feeling nothing of the bustle and jar of the streets where they shall, in effect, find the city put far away from them…”, Frederick Law Olmsted said of one of the oldest park systems in the country. In 1867 a bill for a Boston park was passed by the Massachusetts state legislature. Prior to this, Boston had no major park system except Boston Common. The park commissioners asked Olmsted’s advice for the layout and he designed a whole new park system.
Effect of Gentrification: Introduction In this paper I will describe and explain the impact of gentrification on people of color living in the greater Seattle area in the regards to the issues of accessing housing. Ruth Glass coined the term “gentrification” in 1964 to describe the phenomenon of middle-class settlement in previously working class neighborhoods and the subsequent displacement of the working class residents.

There are cities, like Philadelphia, that as time passes they start to grow in size and population as a result they have to create recreational places. As years go by, people start to interact more in recreational places until they become a cosmopolitan canopy. According to the book “The Cosmopolitan Canopy: Race and Civility in Everyday Life” by Elijah Anderson, a cosmopolitan canopy is a place that provides opportunities for new relationships to develop and where people come together to socialize and practice getting along with others. In this reading, Anderson also explains that a cosmopolitan canopy is not just created by the place itself or by the diversity of ethnicity, gender, and social class in and around it but also by the “goodwill that is expressed and experienced by most who enter these premises” (Anderson 11). Personally, I agree with Anderson because in order for something to become a cosmopolitan canopy, there has to be difference on the people in it.

Early life in Regent Park was not easy Regent Park escorts recorded that Regent Park and adjoining areas of the Old City’s eastend, were home to some of Toronto’s historic slum district in early 1900s.
