Urban spaces in the U.S. have been growing and changing with our country since it first started being populated by colonizers. Starting with New York City in the East Coast and expanding South then West to include places like Atlanta, Dallas, San Francisco, Denver, Los Angeles and more. There are cities like Philadelphia (who was once labelled a town by the census) and places like Columbus, OH which is seen as a small city but is actually the 14th largest city in the U.S. However, growth has not always gone up and it has been studied in different ways over time. The "new urban history" was a short-lived movement that attracted a great deal of attention In the 1960s, then quickly disappeared. Overall urban history grew rapidly in the 1970s and 1980s, stimulated by the surge of interest in social history. Since the 1990s, however, the field has been aging and has had much less attraction to younger scholars. At the start of the twenty-first century, North American urban history is flourishing. Compared to twenty-five years ago, the field has become more interdisciplinary and intellectually invigorating. Scholars are publishing increasingly sophisticated efforts to understand how the city as space intersects the urbanization process, as well as studies that recognize the full complexity of experiences for different metropolitan cohorts. Use the three hints on each question to deduce which city we’re referring to and gain your place among the great city geographers!
