THE APARTMENTS ARE COMING. As of 1961.

In my work as village historian, I have been surveying the repositories of information about, specifically, Hempstead Village.Hidden on a top shelf in a vault, I discovered scrapbooks: four covering Hempstead events 1927-1943, and one with articles from 1961 to about 1965.
      A headline among the 1961 articles impressed me: APARTMENTS COMING TO LONG ISLAND. It was a Newsday article. It impressed me because Long Island communities at this very time, 2017, are organizing to resist a a mushrooming trend of new apartments. The 1961 article could have been written today: people protesting the loss of individual residential areas to multi-unit dwellings, the increase of population density, the burden on infrastructure to handle thousands of new toilets flushing and cars on the roads, the drain on the school tax system -- especially because apartment dwellers don't pay property taxes as directly as residential homeowners, but their children demand as many resources.
     The Incorporated Village of Hempstead has been successfully resisting more apartments for ten years, mostly because it is already overwhelmed with apartment dwellings imposed between the 1940s and the 1980s. Not only that, but it has seen apartment buildings fall empty when the wave of construction passed. Such buildings become the prey of squatters and of renters who want no more than to find shelter, without wanting to pay much or care much for it. 
     Where will this trend of increasing population take us? Are se seeing the result of the population expansion across the world? If there literally are more peope in the world, can we avoid the increase of buildings in already-populated business zones like the Eastern Coast of the United States?

I like village very much. You can take the fresh breath in the peaceful environment and can do everything you want to do and you can never do in your town. Make your time better and go to your village in the vacations.

Hello, Best Online Essay Writing Services, I am not sure what you mean. Are you saying that we should stay in our villages during vacation times instead of going away? Do you mean we should use vacation time to improve the places where we live? If so, you make a good point. We should not complain about our location if we are not willing to spend time making it better.

Dynamite article and I should state this article is connecting with me over and over to peruse it. Huge creation of the individual who posted this article and as it is about the Multilingual Press and reptiles so I unquestionably like it in light of the fact that these points are fantabulous.

I get you on your issues with apartments. Personally, I find apartments, especially the high-rise ones, as an eyesore. But the rise of these dwelling type came about because of the influx of people to the city from the suburb because it is where the jobs and the conveniences are. With the rising city population, space becomes a problem. So instead of horizontal development, planners are going vertical. I think one of the solutions that local government officials should look at is to spread jobs an development into the suburb so that people will not be forced to relocate. Sadly, apartments are hear to stay and more will be built because it is more affordable than a stand-alone property in the city.
