When World War II ended, the United States rejoiced with what they assumed their victory would determine; total peace, the discontinuation of Communism, the return of all the dearly missed soldiers, and greater equality for all, especially in the workplace. Much to the dismay of many citizens at home during the war, these aspirations were not exactly what they expected. In the near short years right after the war, there was much prosperity and many were perfectly content, but in these years, many had difficult times with the changes that occurred after the war. With these rough times came many fears of the conditions of the country, but many of these fears were greatly calmed through the work of the President Eisenhower in the 1950s. In the

The nineteen-twenties was a turbulent and fascinating decade in American history. The new socioeconomic ideology of consumerism brought unprecedented new luxuries to many homes and also transformed the social and artistic atmosphere of city life, especially in New York City. This city, more than most, is generally considered by academics to have best epitomized the new cultural dynamic of the roaring twenties. New York had earned a reputation of vanity and glamour, mostly due to the explosive combination of new money and new works of art in all its forms. In this capacity, New York was seen as a symbol of extravagance and excess around the world.

Inspired by european city rebuilding projects, American cities started clearing away older neighborhoods and creating grand avenues with impressive buildings. The only problem with the growing population was finding housing for the new residents. In Document 6 Nash explains how urban geography changed with emerging central businesses, few people living downtown, middle class residential areas stretched out beyond working class neighborhoods, and the growth of the suburbs which led to better transportation. Many of the rich lived in palatial mansions in the heart of the city while the moderately well to do took advantage of less expensive land on the outer edges of the city thus leading to what was known as the growth of the suburbs. However the poor could not afford housing in the city or in the suburbs and this led to the growth of tenement housing. Tenements were supposed to be great improvements in housing for the poor however they soon became known as “miserable abodes” that were overcrowded and had little to no indoor plumbing or central heating. The growing population also led to transportation problems. The downtown streets were usually too narrow for the heavy traffic that moved through them and most were not paved producing either a lot of mud or a cloud of dust. These problems led to what would later become known as mass

Staten Island did not play a major role in the American Revolution and Civil War. The area was only used as an entrance to Manhattan and Brooklyn where the troops held their forts. Then in 1898 when Staten Island made the decision to join New York City, the county eliminated their separate towns, yet was still known as Richmond County. Staten Island also went through a very large industrialization movement where the Verrazano Bridge was built. The Verrazano Bridge played an enormous role in the success of Brooklyn because Staten Island is the midpoint of Brooklyn and New Jersey. With the establishment of the Verrazano Bridge, commuting was made a lot easier for people who worked in New Jersey. This bridge also endorsed for many more commercial
