|But if you did . . .
Isn't it important to note the significance
of the city in times past? To understand it as the upcoming hub of social
life and exchange, not to mention the center for communication.
In fact, the underlying meaning
of the city has not changed all that much, it is more the external appearance
of the city that has been altered. Roads, trains,
cars and traffic, skyscrapers and asphalt are the defining features
of the city today. But the crowds remain constant. People still flock to
the city to do their business, to sell their wares, to
ogle and gasp and gape and observe. The city is a fascinating creation
of man, inevitable, but nonetheless a testament to man's imagination
Each city of the earth today is
just another wonder of the modern world.
