city stuff

Here's one I made for some class somewhere:

City, cities:

• Cash economy—as opposed to barter economy

• Class, ethnic, economic, linguistic and cultural diversity

• Communications!

• Concentrated housing—esp vertical concentration

• Education on all levels, particularly university and technical

• Home of the middleclass!

• Home of the middleperson—the broker

• Major arts events; major sports events

• Medical centers

• Multiculturalism; transculturalism

• Habitual, deliberate, intentional and purposeful [how many more adjectives would you like to describe this activity?] contact with entities outside of itself

Ghetto of any kind and every type (my apologies for writing this down without a source):
"Nothing much goes in or out of it that wasn't there the day before."
Another list, from the same time, same place:

Body Image, where:
  • body,
  • mind,
  • psyche,
  • spirit and
  • culture
converge. Its impact reverberates in all areas of life:
  • mental,
  • physical,
  • emotional and
  • spiritual.
