A View in Time Between Two Cities

Take a glimpse of how two riverfront cities, one from the USA and the Philippines grew from 1984 to 2016. Click here to view the Google Time lapse slideshow for Metro Manila.

And here to view the Google Time lapse slideshow for Frankfort City, Kentucky.

Notice how urban sprawl follows major highways and the difference between the availability of open green spaces. Metro Manila’s population is approximately 12 million people with a day time demographic of 14 million. On the other hand, Frankfort City has utmost 30,000 citizens. Similarly, both have major rivers and tributaries traversing its boundaries. However one has protected its easements and green spaces while the other did not. Having been born and lived in a metropolitan city like Metro Manila, I highly appreciate and admire how Frankfort City protects and preserves its natural resources.
