Transporting of objects, people or animals:


Disability and Mobility:


Researching Mobility and Transportation:

  • meaning of transportation: The action of transporting someone or something or the process of being transported.
  • means of transportation; aeroplanes, cars, the tube, bus, trains, boats, motorbikes, bikes, skateboards, scooters and rollerblades. (This are all of the transports methods that I  have spotted the New Yorkers use so far, I have also tried to pay special attention to Asian people and like most citizens, they use the tube and buses most frequently. My guess on why this is the two types of transport are used so often is that is the most cost-effective way to get around that does not require much physical activity.) I WILL COLLECT MORO DATA AS THE WEEK GOES ON
  • Ways of getting to Chinatown; According to my research from Manhattan’s east side, you can take the 6 train to Canal Street station and the 4 or 5 train to Brooklyn Bridge. From Manhattan’s west side, you can board the B or the D train to Grand Street station. From Queens, you can get on the Z train to Canal Street. From Brooklyn, the D, B, N, Q, R, J, M, and 6 trains all stop at the Grand Street or Canal Street stations. And the M-15 bus runs south on 2nd Avenue to Chatham Square. also, the M-102 and M-101 run south on Lexington Avenue to Bowery Street to Chatham Square and another way is the M-6 bus that runs south on Broadway to Canal Street. ( My research has shown me one of the reasons why Asian people choose to ride the bus and the tube it is because is so well connected there is no need to buy expensive cars.)
  •  Moving around Chinatown:  according to my secondary research, Chinatown has the same grid-like systems for there roads that the rest of the city has, however, with an estimated population of 90,000 to 100,000 that contains the largest ethnic Chinese population outside of Asia, comprising an estimated 819,527 individuals as of 2014, I would imagine that it will be rather packed and chaotic because all of the markets, Chinatown it is also said to be a cheap place to buy anything really. / primary research,
