In the Chicago land area alone, gentrification plays a huge role. Gentrification is the process of renewal and rebuilding accompanying the influx or middle class of affluent people into deteriorating areas that often displaces poorer residents. In other words, it is when the city tears down a building where people live, to update its area and raises prices so high that tenants cannot afford it any longer, forcing past tenants to move into poorer areas. Hundreds of lower and middle class income people have been afflicted by gentrification in Chicago, but it really isn't as bad as people make it seem, it is a sign of economic growth and improvement. Dave Ross states in his article how gentrification works that, “Many aspects of everyday life are being changed for the better, buildings and parks are renovated and beautiful.
Urban areas doubled, tripled, or quadrupled in size which led to overcrowding in cities. Sometimes a large population is a good thing, but in this case the population was too big and caused many health problems. Living conditions were dirty and unhealthy. Cities were unsanitary and diseases filled the streets. There were no sanitation codes in cities.
The Industrial Revolution witnessed the evolution of large urban centers, such as Boston and New York City. It changed society from agrarian to mechanical, which further moved jobs to larger cities. As every coin has two sides, there are negative sides to this. Primarily, it caused severe pollution. The environment condition was bad with smokes surrounding them.
The workers were subject to the dangerous, hard jobs and low pay. Industrialization brought about a number of changes in society, economic and art. The huge impact was on the society whereas no longer had an appropriate moral, ethical and spiritual. Critics and intellectuals such as Augustus Welby
The reading this week is by Mike Davis, and is titled Planet of Slums. Mike Davis creates an argument on how slums are a worldly issue that is spreading. Davis first begins his argument with statistics based on the monumental increase of population in all countries across the globe. He also uses examples of the increase of hypercities and megacities due to intensified urbanization in Mexico-city, Seoul-Injon, and New York. Which leads into the effects on the citizens, such as China and India, and the lack of proper housing and accommodations with such a rapidly growing population.
If you breathe, you are an automatic victim of air pollution. c. Preview: So today I will talk about air pollution. First, I will discuss indoor and outdoor air pollution. Then I will inform you on how it affects us economically.
As Britannica states, “As Western industrial cities rapidly expanded during the first part of the 20th century, factories encroached upon residential areas, tenements crowded in among small houses, and skyscrapers overshadowed other buildings. To preserve property values and achieve economy and efficiency in the structure and arrangement of the city.” (Susan S. Fainstein), I can tell that urban planning got messed up and the city got overcrowded during the industrialization process. This is another quote that shows how bad the city planning was during the era of the industrialization: “The slums, congestion, disorder, ugliness, and threat of disease provoked a reaction in which sanitation improvement was the first
Morris argues that along with denying us the fulfillment of a healthy community life, sprawl is also a heavy economic burden since the economic aspects played as well an important role in the spread out of cities. By continuously developing land further and further
1. INTRODUCTION 1.1 Background and Motivation Solid waste management is the one of the important and major problem faced by today’s world. With the increase in commercial, residential and infrastructure development due to the population growth, it has lead to negative impact on the environment.. In developing countries like India, Solid waste management is considered as one of the most tedious environmental problems faced by municipal authorities . Rapid urbanization along with increasing industrial, economic and commercial development, have given rise to an increased generation of various types of waste.
Finally, the sea level rise and flooding is a big problem people-wise. Flooding causes millions in damage that sometimes cannot be reversed. Flooding is encouraged by climate change because of the increase in moisture trapped in the air, and rain happening earlier in the year and falling on still frozen ground. Houses being destroyed by increased water also leave people homeless and cost a lot to fix. Climate change will cause more natural disasters such as flooding, tornadoes and

Many aren’t aware of the problem we have with urban sprawl. Everywhere we go we see farmlands and forest being destroyed to build houses, offices, and parks. There are many issues towards urban sprawl in how it affects our country and certain areas that could affect individuals. We already have many environmental issues we have to deal with like global warming, climate changes, deforestation, and pollution. Urban sprawl has increased certain environmental issues starting with deforestation.
There are as many differences between Memphis and Dallas as there are similarities. The first that comes to mind would be the traffic. Although Memphians complain about the traffic, it really isn 't that bag compared to other cities. You may sit in traffic for a half an hour on your way to work, but your not going to sit anywhere for more than an hour unless the interstate is shut down due to a massive wreck. The drivers in Memphis have a tendency to be rude and reckless.
For travelers tall and overgrown trees, malfunction traffic lights or inconspicuous stops signs present danger or hazard on the public road. Perhaps the traffic lights on both sides of the intersection signal for the drivers to proceed will cause a major car pile-up. Potholes are a potential risk that leads to terrible car crash and vehicle damage. Potholes are costly to the economy; billions of dollars spent on highway deaths and car damages.
