The city of New York is significantly different from the city of Winston Salem in North Carolina. Some of their dissimilarities can be seen in lifestyle, transportation, job availability and crime rate.
The life style and enthusiasm in Winston Salem is slow pace. Some days, mostly on weekends, the roads are almost empty; you see few or no car on the streets. You seldom find people of different cultures and ethnicity. Life in Winston Salem is boring because you do not have a wild variety of social gatherings, dance performances and different movies in theatre.There are good housing in good neighborhood on affordable prices. Cost of living, generally is cheap.
New York City is a fast pace city. People are rushing either to catch up with the next bus or for one appointment or the other. The streets are always crowded with people; every one seems to be in a state of pandemonium. One day, I was walking down the street with my f...

- Irish Emigration to New York City The Potato Famine - How, Why, and When the Famine Started Many historians equate the Irish immigration to America with the potato famine of the 1840s, but is is clear that a considerable number of Irish had made their way to Great Britain’s colonies on the North American mainland before 1800. For example, many Irish families came and settled the colonies in the early 1600s. Harbors and towns were named after settlers. Some of these settlers even became Royal governors; one example is Sir Thomas Dongan, who became governor of the colony of New York in 1682.... [tags: American History]

- The city was blinding me with shining lights that you could see from space. It was glistening in the night and dull by day. There were cars parked all alongside the streets and traffic jams every corner. The place that I visited was New York City over the summer about three years ago. My mom and I stayed with my aunt who lives in Poughkeepsie, which is about thirty minutes outside of New York City. Poughkeepsie is a small town that you find outside of a big city, it was a small family owned shops that consisted of knick knacks and second-hand stores....

- In the early 1900’s the dense urban living is greatly affecting Europe. The popularity of the automobile is slowly beginning to rise amongst the every day citizen and there are already raised train railways. The European Futurist are looking to raze old cities to create more space for a new city, and maximize efficiency of space, and there are also the proponents for the Garden City looking to lessen the congestion of cities and promote a healthier lifestyle. The European Futurists envisioned a city that was “…active, mobile, and everywhere dynamic, and the modern building like a gigantic machine.” This city was to be modern, demolishing the old city that existed and abolishing ornamentat...

- Dear cockroaches who attacked me, on the streets of Brooklyn, New York City, I hate you, I hate you in ways you wouldn’t imagine, I’m not sure you have an imagination. But that’s beside the point. Before I get to bashing you I just want to tell you a little about myself, speaking of the circumstances we didn’t get the proper introduction. I’m a Chicago girl, I’ve only come across bugs when every I go into basements and I can tell you I don’t do that much often. I’ve been afraid of butterflies, grass hoppers and other insects since well who knows when.... [tags: New York City, Chicago]

- There are so many people suffering in New York City and around the world because they are unable to afford basic necessities for themselves and their families; many are living well below the poverty level. This is because New York City has a major income gap, the biggest gap in any county in the United States (Roberts, 2014). Over the past twenty years, the income gap has just gone up and will continue to rise if we do not find out why it is happening and how to stop it. According to Roberts (2014), “The top 5 percent of households earned 864,394, or 88 times as much as the poorest 20 percent…” (pg.1).... [tags: Poverty, United States, New York City]

- Traffic. Hundreds and thousands of people crowding the sidewalk. Diverse food places to get your grub on. All of these elements in my environment sort of work in a harmonious pattern in a place I call home, New York City. When I ask people about New York City they usually associate it with the extraordinary buildings that pierce the sky or the congested sidewalks with people desperate to shop in the famous luxury stores in which celebrities dwell. Even though I grew up here, I somehow manage to get lost within the Big Apple.... [tags: New York City, Madison Square Garden]

- With all the traditions that come with this time of year, there is one in particular that my friends and I have not celebrated since we started having kids and the holidays became all about them (thanks for ruining Christmas, kids). Every year, after the tree in Rockefeller Center went up, we would gather as many of us as we could and we 'd venture into New York City. Some years we had as many as forty people. Friends of friends added to the crowd. Our tradition was to first go down to Greenwich Village for a few drinks then uptown to Rockefeller Center and see the tree, fighting the crowds all the way there....

- Journal Entry 3: Lower Manhattan Our third adventure in the course was in Lower Manhattan also known as the Civic Center. Coming from Queens I usually take the N train coming from Astoria to the city so I was running a bit late. I was never great with directions or the subway in general but I impressed myself when I was able to take the train downtown and meet up the rest of the class. I met up with my class in the Civic Center where City Hall stood. I rarely go to lower side of the city mostly because I always found it to be a bit duller compared to the rest of Manhattan....

- New York City, the city of dreams and high expenses. That’s one of the things I have taken away from reading the census data and Florida’s Cities and the Creative Class. What is humorous to me is that the idea of how much residential places cost and how much space you get for the price leaves me wondering why New York City has the majority of the highest percentage of people living in the city with creative careers. However, I shouldn’t be the one questioning anything because here I am in New York City paying so much more for an education here than I would have paid at the other schools I got into....
