The Great American Divide (Part 1)
I’ve always been amazed at how closely rich and poor communities exist close to each other or, in some cases, right beside each other. In New York, the South Bronx is situated a few subway stops from Manhattan’s posh Upper East Side and a brief car ride from the lush suburbs of Long Island. The blighted east side of Columbus, Ohio is separated from the mansions of Bexley by Alum Creek. Many rural low-income communities are located, literally, “across the tracks” from their wealthier counterparts. In 21st Century America there exists a disconnect between the rich and the poor. Both exist simultaneously, in close proximity, without ever having to interact. It is as if a wall separates the two. “The Great American Divide (Part 1)” is a blighted, urban half of a whole. The less fortunate toil while another world exists, unbeknownst on the other side of the wall.
