Compare and contrast

The two articles have some similarities, obvious and subtle, they also contrast in the same way. The ways that they do relate,is that they talk of people in both articles. The cities and performances within them both need, people to continue to exist. Without tourism, or curiosity neither would be as functional as they are. A way that they contrast is obvious. They rely on the different aesthetics within the field to work, one relying on the location itself, the other on the people.

Colmenares_Alejandro: Class assignment 2


Not the best of days for travel, but my commute was the same nonetheless. i get out of my house and i can walk to either train station to get to school. I chose to go to the 111st station, where it’s headed on 109st. i walk to 108th where i always walk by a Gmc envoy parked on the corner. 109th street always looks more open, so this is where i turn. From here it is a straight walk to the train. I listen to a podcast until the train goes underground, and i switch to my music to drown out the mass of people. It’s fairly crowded so i listen and read the reading for today. It is Jay street, so i get off, climb the stairs out of the train and get on the other side of Jay street. I see the tkts booth, the mini coffee shop, and i turn left to see the starbucks and NYU polytech. I walk down the path to all the construction being worked on the Jacobs building and the new Citytech building. I cross the street and enter the building, and search for the classroom for the day.
