For Wednesday’s class, you were asked to identify the location within walking distance of City Tech that you would like to use for your research essay, and to draft a question that could focus your research. Please reply to this post with your research location and question. I will offer suggestions, and I encourage you to do so as well.

UPDATE: at this point, you should have identified your location, drafted and refined a research question, and begun drafting a thesis statement and outline of your essay. We will continue working on this in class.

    The Barclays Center and my thesis question is how it will effect Brooklyn an the area around it since its been 55 years since a professional sports team has been in Brooklyn.

    I am also choosing The Barclays Center because for some reason out of everything else it attracts me more. due to the fact of how popular it’s becoming. This is great for Brooklyn because it brings more attraction to the area and it gives you the option to do more in my hometown. My thesis is how come after all these years they finally decided to create such a fantastic place in Brooklyn?

    I am choosing the Fort Greene park, as I have always passed by it and to be honest, I feel as though it is calling out to me, so I am interested in researching it. I don’t know much about it, but that is the point of research, to learn more about something. My research question is: How has the creation of the Fort Green park furthered the growth of Brooklyn as a whole? I know it has had some impact of brooklyn’s growth and it intrigues me as to how it has done so.
