The last two decades of the 19th century saw rapid population growth due in part to industrialization which is the development of an industry on a massive scale.
As many immigrants and other people moved into large cities urbanization occurred which is the process by which cities grow and societies become more urban.
Because of industrialization there were many jobs for people in the cities, so many moved there. This also caused a massive change in transportation as people needed ways to get in and out of the city and to transport the products that were being made. As a result trolleys, cable cars and subways were built. Because of urbanization the cities became very crowded, traffic, disease, noise and light pollution became prevalent. Due to the great amount of immigrants coming to the cities, neighborhoods and communities were created by the specific groups were they could keep their cultural practices and customs.
