Riccobono, Jonathan A.
MetadataShow full item record
This project looks at the anonymity of nightlife within public spaces. The paper first looks at public spaces and their meaning for different individuals. It takes into consideration the criteria behind creating a 'sense of place.' It then explains why sense of place is important to take notice in our everyday motions and activities. The paper then compares a sense of place to that in the United States compared to European cities. While wrapping up the first section, the paper discovers a recent decline in successful public spaces and the consequences behind this change. By specifically looking at college students and young professionals, this paper covers the many interactions and encounters that arise while carousing through streets of our downtowns. The project investigates perceived interactions and various social benefits that arise during our participation in nightlife. By looking at the anonymity that is employed at night, the reader will uncover the answer to why many of us seek to become involved in nightclubs, bars, restaurants, taverns and the like. Furthermore, the reader will be able to recognize how anonymity takes part in shaping the anonymous city at night.
