I am going to compare and contrast the two region midwest and the west region. In a article it stated that the Midwestern United States or Midwest refers to the north-central states of the United States of America, specifically Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Ohio, Nebraska, North Dakota,
Imagine yourself moving to a different city. You have looked at all the cities you would most likely move to and you have finally picked out that El Paso, Texas and London, England are your two final choices. After narrowing down the options to two cities its important to look at similarities and differences. Although El Paso, Texas and London, England are similar in their cheap housing and exuberant job opportunities, they differ in their getaways, job opportunities, and housing.
The article “Life in Mississippi: East St Louis, Illinois” is one that is not taken lightly. The article shows one the injustice that African Americans face in the city of St. Louis. The article all together is shocking and heartbreaking. To know that in a country that is suppose to be one of the greatest, if not the greatest, there still is so much injustice is not only eye opening but also upsetting. One of the 2 most heartbreaking parts for me was when Kozol describes the old men leaning on his cane listening to Jesse Jackson and crying. This is something so powerful to me because this is someone who has experience all of the hardships that east St. Louis has to offer and he has to live knowing that not much has change and maybe Jesse Jackson was the only one promising the change they deserve. The last scene was when one of the students goes up to Kozol after class and tell him that what Dr. King did was nothing because they are still living in such horrible situations. For a teenage kid to think and feel that way, they must have had to suffer through so much, which is exactly what the article is able to show us, the injustice that these kids face on a daily basis. Having read this is shocking to one because we live in a different area where we aren’t prone to see such things and because we have grown up and taught to believe that racism and poverty is almost non existing because this is American a country that doesn’t fail the people.
William Cronon frequently mocks the early “boosters” for concluding that Chicago’s “natural advantages” were the sole cause of the city’s swift growth in the 19th century. He argues that people, whether it is their inventions, professions, or activities, should be regarded as the main reason for Chicago’s remarkable development. The subsection “Gateway Rivalry: Chicago and St. Louis” offers many examples that debunk the idea of “natural advantage”; in fact, this particular section aims to mock the “boosters” by citing their stance as the reason that prevents St. Louis from growing as rapidly as Chicago. A bulk of the author’s argument rests on proving that railroads—with emphasis on the notion that people invented them—were the hallmark of
On the east side of Massachusetts, there lies a city that has been around for almost four hundred years, Boston. Boston is one of the most famous cities in the world. It is known for many things, the Boston Tea Party, the Boston Massacre, the Boston Marathon Bombing, and so many more. There are hundreds of miles of streets that connect and make this beautiful city. This beautiful city is home to hundreds of thousands of people.
St. Louis was established on the west bank of the Mississippi river. In the 19th century, St. Louis was largely developed mostly due to its busy port and trade connections (wikipedia.com). Due to advantageous geographical location and industrialization, St. Louis was the 4th largest city in the United States in the 20th century. In the mid-20th century, governors started to rebuild downtown with large-scale construction. Lots of parking and office buildings were built to create a fine working environment which in turn attracts people moving to St. Louis. However, from late 1960s, downtown St. Louis started to losing its power. Suburbanization caused a big loss of population, which marked the beginning of recession of the city. Now, St. Louis
There are also other factors that could explain the big differences between these cities. The ethnic and racial makeup of the people living there and their educational levels could be a big difference. To really explain the increase or decline in both these cities is difficult because the two areas that I choose are so very different in population is really the biggest difference.
DESCRIBE: what are the streets like? Stop signs? Sidewalks? Houses close together? A rich side and poor side of town? Markets? Stores? Playgrounds? Places to congregate
In St. Louis, one in two black children, opposed to one in 25 white children, attend a school that is non-accredited. This means that the school performs so poorly that they don’t meet basic standards to provide students the opportunity for academic success. After her school was stripped of its
In 1877 life in the cities of Cheyenne and Chicago were very different. Although they differed they had few things in common such as the use of newspapers for information. Another thing that both of the cities had in common was neither city had used electric lights yet. Also,both cities

The health status according to the 2017 County Health Rankings, St. Louis has a homicide death rate of 33 people per 100,000 (“Crime,” 2017).

Compared to the city, the country has far less crime and many feel comfortable leaving their doors
New York City vs. Los Angeles: East Coast to West Coast For Christmas and my sixteenth birthday present my parents planned a trip for me to go to New York City with my dad. Two days after Christmas me and my dad hopped on the plane and headed for New Jersey and New York City. I was very excited because I had been to New Jersey but I never visited New York City before. I also remember being excited because of that fact that I would actually get to see snow in the winter since it rarely ever snowed in Houston during the winter. Then that next year during my junior year in High School, I had the opportunity to go on a trip to Los Angeles with my drill team. I was very excited to get to go to both of these huge awesome cities in that two year period. Both of these cities were unique in their own way. So what makes a city similar to another city and what makes a city different to another city? The people, the weather, the vibe, the monuments and popular attractions are all some of the components of what makes a city unlike any other city. My two favorite cities besides Houston are New York and Los Angeles. I have visited both and like them both equally for different reasons. While New York and Los Angeles definitely have their similarities, they also have many differences that set them apart from each other.
