An Airport Ate the Neighborhood
Available as an Ebook only
"An Airport Ate the Neighborhood" comes from the writing collection, Essays & More Straight from the Pen, available in print and as an eBook. This memoir is a historical accounting of astonishing facts about the world's busiest airport, which covers the early years and some events from the author's life as a delinquent child and young adult. Anyone who lives or works near an airport may be able to identify with the experience of change generated through airport expansion. The author's speculative effect of the experience makes this essay unique: It is something to consider when trying to understand the effect of extreme noise in the environment in which one lives; especially, its effect on a child or young adult.
