City Life for Immigrants 1900-1950

...City Life for Immigrants 1900-1950 Aditya Thapliyal GGSIP University Abstract Since the turn of the 20th century and over the next few decades, over 15 Million immigrants landed at United States. This number was as much as the total immigrants which arrived in 40 years prior to that. Most of the immigrants were coming from different countries compared to the immigrants from past few years and most of the new immigrants came from Non-English speaking countries like Russia, Poland and Italy which had different culture from United States. Due to these differences of languages and culture immigrants found it difficult in adjust to the Lifestyle. Cities went on to be overcrowded by immigrants as most of them were looking for jobs and it was easier to find work in cities where natives were unwilling to take up jobs which they found unfit for themselves. With the passage of time immigrants were able to improve their condition as authorities also started to place new immigrants within populous cities. According to reports by 1910, 75% of the population of New York City were either first generation immigrants or descendants of immigrants. Due to limited income most of the immigrants started to settle in affordable apartments and mass tenement where living conditions were quite uncomfortable. Rooms were as small as 10 feet had no windows and people living had to harbour inconvenient living conditions which were defiled, soggy and had dreadful odour. This experience had a...

Little Village

...Introduction South Lawndale (Little Village) is located on the west side of the city of Chicago, lllinois, Is one of the 77 well defined Chicago community areas. History After the great Chicago fire of October 1871, many residents of Chicago were looking to move away from the crowded city. Areas on the city’s outskirts were quickly being developed, even as the ashes and rubble from the great fire were still being cleared. In 1871, Chicago real estate investors wanted to build an affluent subdivision in the suburban area west of Chicago, choosing an area just short of the Chicago city limits. The original subdivision was bound by Twenty-second Street, Twenty-sixty Street, Hamlin Avenue and Homan Avenue. Investors decided to built all homes to be constructed of brick, ranging from $2,500 to $8,500. ( Chicago Littles Village) By the turn of the 20th century, the west side of Chicago would become the largest industrial section of the city, and as a result, the more affluent residents began to move away from the Little Village area. They would eventually be replaced by immigrants, mostly of Eastern European extraction, from Czech Republican, Poland, Germany, and Hungary. Fast forwarding to the early 1960’s, Little Village began showing some troubling signs of change. Many of the community’s residents were moving farther west to the Czech-dominated suburbs of Cicero and Berwyn. This was largely due to fear based on the rapid changes just north of Little Village...

Hurt Village

...Ty’Arrah Walker Professor Ruffin Blacks in the Arts November 1, 2013 Hurt Village Hurt Village is a play that takes place in the projects in Memphis, Tennessee. The play starts off with one of the main characters, a 13-year old by the name of Cookie rapping in the dark. The raps are filled with frustrations that Cookie experiences while growing up in Hurt Village. As the play transitions into different scenes, Cookie, her family, and other Hurt Village residents sing nursery rhymes and rhymes to show their deprivation. These songs are a big part of the understanding of the play. Hurt Village did a phenomenal job in presenting the struggles of the black community in the projects everywhere, not just Hurt Village. The struggles that the families face in Hurt Village face are a reality for many black families in the projects. Drugs, poverty, and crime seem to be the typical stereotype amongst African-Americans as a whole. In the case of the people living in Hurt Village, this statement is true, but the story is based on Cookie’s family trying to make a way out. A struggling black mother and grandmother, who they refer to as, “Big Mama,” throughout the play tries to make a better life for her granddaughter (Cookie), Cookie’s mother (Crank), and her grandson (Buggy), who is also Cookie’s father. Big Mama makes her living by cleaning hospital and consistently working overtime. After becoming mentally ill after the war, Buggy returns home, and it seems like he comes...

Global Village

...“News from Global Village” Media guru Marshall McLuhan was certainly accurate about his future projection of electronic technology and the size of the impact it would have in the world. McLuhan was the first person to popularize the concept of a global village and to consider it social effects; little would he have known that ten years after his death the World Wide Web will be invented and his prophecy will be fulfilled and exceed expectations. He provided the foundation of thought about media, technology, and communication. Today technology has provided a way for people to search and reach any sort of information within seconds, people from different continents can see each other via chat room and web cameras, blogs and news are available instantly for anyone that has access to the internet. According to McLuhan, in the new age humankind will move from individualism to a fragmentation of collective identity, developing a new social organization. The term “global village” can have several meanings behind it, however my understanding McLuhan uses the word “global” to emphasize that this change is taken place throughout the world from the richest country to the third world countries that are getting a share of the new technologies now available to everyone that is willing to learn, and the term village can refer to the specific identity and diversity that this phenomena has created within humankind everywhere all over the world. Today instead of using the library as...

Village and City

...Every country is divided mainly into two areas. Rural and urban areas. By the term rural areas we mostly refer to villages and by urban areas refers to cities. A person has two choices either he or she can enjoy peaceful village life or can live a fast life in city. Villages are very different from cities, they vary in sizes which are mostly dependent upon the population size. Villages are located in the outskirts of the city. Typical rural areas have a low population density and small settlements. Agricultural areas are commonly rural though; so are others such as forests. In villages, there are diverse people and numerous social groups can be found. In villages in countries such as Pakistan, high population of minorities can be found. The houses are made of either mud or wood depending upon the availability of the material. You can spot wide stretches of green land. These areas consist not only of trees but also cultivatable land in which you can often see farmers working on their plantations. From a hilly area you can witness all the wonders of a rural life as it is surrounded by natural beauty and greenery as the nature embraces its existence. You can see sunflower plantations, standing tall amongst the land and gazing at the sky. Benefits of rural aren’t limited to your eyes but your body also gains from it. Everything you eat is pure and naturally provided. Water from fresh streams, pure milk from the cows and best quality of fruits. You can also enjoy the pleasant...

Village Life in Late Tsarist Russia

... familiar with the stories I was telling, each time they hear they, they are intrigued and want to know more. They urged me, more and more to continue reminiscing on my life by saying, “Continue! Please keep going! We have to know how you became a mother. Did you do those same things your mother did to you? Were you scared you wouldn’t have a son as the first-born? and so on. Their enthusiasm made it impossible to stop at only a few stories tonight, so I continued. “When I first became married, I was around twenty-two years old. Your grandfather was only twenty, but that was typical of time. We were quite fond of each other when I approached my mother to marry him, and he consented that he would like to marry me as well [63]. We had not been married long when I found out I was pregnant. Your grandfather, his mother and father, and I were all very excited that I was expecting my first child [9]. My husband would say, “You just might bring me a son, mother.” I knew though, that if I was smart, I would have a daughter for myself to be a helper and nursemaid for myself in the future, just as I had been for my own mother. My mother-in-law told all of the village with satisfaction that I was putting on weight; we all anticipated the birth of a child, but none more than me. All of my pregnancies were trying, but probably none more than the first. I worked right up until the onset of my labor pains. In fact, I was out in the field doing a typical day’s job when I felt labor......
