Link to virtual Central Park, NYC - SCROLL DOWN FOR BLOG 20

Since we're studying the changes in cities around the turn of the 20th Century, here is the link to Virtual Central Park, NYC.

Also, here's an interesting article from CNN about a woman's purse that had been stolen and then tossed into a hollow cherry tree back in 1982. The woman and her wallet were reunited this summer in July 2009.

And here is a link to the history of Central Park:

Makes for interesting reading about Fred Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux and their fights over what to do with the park and its designs.

I think that we should have a wall that is on the border line of Mexico. I agree to the wall because for one it gives us Americans more jobs and not the immagrants jobs because the immagrants work the same or more from less pay. Also it would prevent terrorist from entering from the southern border into the United States. Also it could allow the border control to monitor other places that are more or less important because the wall have cameras too. Also it stops smugglers to enter the United States. Also if Americans have more jobs we would have a cleaner and safer city because if Americans lose their jobs and cant get another because of the illegal immagrants they might go to stealing because they cant find a job. Also the united States wouldnt be as populated because if the wall was built there would be less people so it wont become crowded in the future.
