Human/Environment Interaction-New York City
In NYC, people affect the environment a lot. They are building skyscrapers and using more modes of transportation. The only problem is, that the pollution levels are increasing because of the population boost and the traffic in many areas. The major HEI was 9/11, when two planes flew into the World Trade Center. They collapsed and caused a lot of smoke, smog and fire in the downtown area and the skies of NYC. Even the harbor area was affected. To this day, we have memorials and the Freedom Tower was built a decade later. NYC has also been affected by extreme weather in the past. When Hurricane Sandy came, the entire downtown and Laguardia airport was flooded.
