The breeding of apathy amongst people leads to the destruction and deterioration of a city and its environment. Indifference towards morals and other human beings becomes reflected in the surroundings as a result of the inhabitants own careless behavior. Jane Jacobs, the author of The Death and Life of Great American Cities, once said “Cities have the capability of providing something for everybody, only because, and only when, they are created by everybody” (Jacobs, 238). This statement is true, but with this truth comes a harsh reality. Just like the idea that everyone can create a city so that it can provide for its community, people can also tear down a city through apathy, which leaves nothing but destruction.
