Pittsburgh is known to be a very popular place with many people which means there will be a lot of traffic, but where does everyone park? Parking is an ongoing problem for many different cities but Pittsburgh for sure has very limited parking. You are always hunting to find a spot. This would not be as much of a problem unless you were a college student trying to get to class and then you end up ten minutes late since you could not find a spot. College students, such as people from Point Park University, have been complaining about the parking in Pittsburgh and want there to be something done about it. Not everyone wants to stay on campus and they may not be in walking distance of the campus. When they drive to class they want there to be a
So we have to consider the commuting distance, the For example, my dad drives to Brampton to work just for 5 hours and he gets paid a minimum wage. I live in Oakville so it takes quite a while for my dad to get to where he works. This is time consuming, tiring and also waste of gas money. So what I’m trying to say is that we have to consider the commuting distance as well.
Despite the attractiveness and propitious of Toronto, it has also exacerbated social polarization as a result of globalization; reflected by containing the largest financial hub in Canada, the grossly spanning condo scene, and gentrifying
In the documentary “The ten Town That Changed America” Geoffrey Baer illustrates the evolution of ten popular cities of the 21st century America. Done in chronological order, the documentary explores how these US cities were developed by visionary citizens who combined, urban planning, design, and architecture to change the way people lived. According to the documentary, these planners had passion and great insights for urban development, although driven by different inspirations and motivations. But one thing was central to these people: to build an environment that would change the way people live in America.
Bob was walking down Bay Street and noticed all these wonderful developments. “He loves the smell of concrete. He loves the look of city lights. He loves the sound of skyscrapers.” (King 62)
Traffic congestion is a condition on convey networks that occurs as use increases, and is characterized by more gradual speeds, longer trip times, and incremented vehicular queueing. The most mundane example is the physical utilization of roads by conveyances. When traffic demand is great enough that the interaction between conveyances slows the haste of the traffic stream, this results in some congestion. As demand approaches the capacity of a road (or of the intersections along the road), extreme traffic congestion sets in. When conveyances are plenarily ceased for periods of time, this is colloquially kenned as a traffic jam or traffic snarl-up. Traffic congestion can lead to drivers becoming frustrated and engaging in road rage.
The noise and inconvenience of these buses on narrow residential streets have caused inconveniences for citizens. Another negative externality the tech companies are creating is the effect of driving up rental prices within a walking distance of their company city bus stops. Lower-income people should not bear the brunt of the negative externalities of economic
With the increase of population the number of vehicles in the urban areas will also increase, but if the land area won’t get expand it will lead to traffic congestion. This is a huge negative impact on the country’s economy. The main negative impact from traffic congestion is the wastage of fuel, energy. Other than that; wastage of time, difficulties in parking, less efficiency and effectiveness are some negative impacts of traffic congestions. • HIGH MAINTANANCE COST
The poem Beneath the Shadow of the Freeway written by Lorna Dee Cervantes, and the movie Hidden Figures originally a book written by Margot Lee Shetterly both convey the theme of empowerment to hard-working, strong women who can be just as smart and diligent as a man without the actual help of one. Both Dee Cervantes’ poem and Shetterly’s movie/book voice the importance of being strong willed as a women and making a life for yourself regardless your situation. Two concepts I found in these pieces of literature that I would like to obtain personally is the topic: focus on what you can control, not what you can’t, and cultivate a strong support group to achieve your success.
Data and Analysis My main focuses were on the types of people walking about (e.g. I observed homeless people walking with shopping carts), the amount of maintenance (trash piling where trash cans should be), and the surrounding structures. This allowed me to see a general demographic of people and the present economic class . From my observations, the streets are not well-cared for, having uneven pavement and depressions. Graffiti is also a prominent feature and is all over buildings, ATM machines, signposts, parking meters--almost any available flat surface.
It was probably one of the most lengthy streets I have come across. I decided to drive the entire street because I wanted to get more of a holistic feel for it. As a future teacher I believe it is very important to observe the surrounding streets and cities in order to get a better sense of the community. Valley Boulevard represented a dominant culture that was evident through their signs. Prior to this assignment I never paid much attention to my surroundings since I was so focused on getting from point A to point B. AUSD is also a school with a large number of Asians in their schools.
