Life in the city can be an exciting experience. You honestly never know what is going to happen or what you may see. In the video we saw in class you could already tell that the world was hectic back then. I saw that there many fights, traffic looked crazy, and the streets were really crowded. In “The Man of the Crowd” the author talks about the streets being filled with vendors and that you could easily point them out. “The tribe of clerks was an obvious one; and here I discerned two remarkable divisions. There were the junior clerks of flash houses — young gentlemen with tight coats, bright boots, well-oiled hair, and supercilious lips.” There is not many differences between my city and the city of both the video and “The Man of the Crowd” just that now the city is definitly not having riots like in the video.
