He started his journey through New York City. | Diesel dreamed of going to Columbia university, which is relatively close to central park. As he ventured the streets to get there he noticed some features about new York.

6: Diesel saw how the people here adapted to their environment by Connecting all the islands together with bridges and with the limited land they have they built skyscrapers to take up less land but have more people in them.
7: These are all examples of human environment interactions. | human environment interactions are the way humans adapt to and modify the environment. Humans can shape the landscape through their interactions with the land.
8: Diesel didn't walk everywhere because he would get too tired so he used the subway to get around. Sometimes when he had to get to another island he would hitch a ride on a barge.
9: The subway is an example of movement and also the barge because it moves people and goods places. Telephones would also be an example because it moves news around. newspaper,cars,etc.
10: After Diesel got off the barge he was charged for not paying to go to a different region of New york. | Diesel did not know what a region was, so he hiked to the public library to find out. Turns out NYC is split up into a few islands and they refer to them as regions here.
11: The real definition of a region is- something that divides the world into manageable units for geographic study. Regions have some sort of characteristic that unifies the area.
