The Spread of Megalopolis
Commentary Simone Rocha Rock Of Cotton With Hole Embroidery

It’s been a little more than a half century since noted French geographer Jean Gottmann first used the term to refer to the heavily populated northeastern coast of the United States, stretching from Northern Virginia to southern New Hampshire. Today, the notion of Megalopolis is still important as the U.S. population continues to grow and additional megalopolitan regions emerge.

Why did Gottmann term this region Megalopolis? In a 1964 report from The Century Foundation (then known as the Twentieth Century Fund), using data from Gottmann’s research, Wolf Von Eckert describes Megalopolis as such:

For the nation as a whole Megalopolis is what Main Street is for most communities. It is the place where government, most of the banks, the big offices, the newspaper and broadcasting stations, the important stores, the schools, libraries and theaters are concentrated. It is the place where policies, decisions and fashions, or most of them, are made for the entire community. If Main Street is booming, the whole community prospers.

Conceptually, Gottmann and Von Eckert view Megalopolis as an interconnected network of both urban and suburban areas rather than one giant city. Von Eckert writes that the region is an almost continuous system of deeply interwoven areas—politically, economically, and culturally: “It is difficult to tell where one city ends and another begins.”

And Megalopolis should not be thought of as primarily urban. “Our concept of the city as a tightly settled and organized unit, crowded with people, activities and riches, no longer applies. Cities are no longer separated from their nonurban surroundings,” Von Eckart writes.

What are the characteristics of Gottmann’s Megalopolis?

High population density— In 1960, the average population density of Megalopolis was 700 people per square mile, compared to 51 people per square mile on average nationwide.

Concentrated money market— From the nation’s capital to the largest financial institutions, security exchanges, and insurance companies, to Madison Avenue and the wealth of financial power in Boston and Philadelphia, Megalopolis dominated the money market.

Revolution in land distribution— Rather than maintaining the traditional push-pull relationship between rural and urban areas, Megalopolis saw a new pattern of symbiosis emerge between the rural and the urban, partially as a result of a new counter-pull of manufacturers in suburban areas.

Jobs and trade— A cycle is established: a high population density means there are a lot of consumers as well as workers. Manufacturers in Megalopolis have a big advantage of location. Also, as Von Eckert notes, “variety in itself brings vitality to Megalopolitan manufacturing.”

Fluid transportation between areas— Though highway, railroad, boat, and airplane infrastructure are well-established, Gottmann, in his research, notes the need for a more fluid system of traffic in Megalopolis as its cities become more integrated and interdependent than in the rest of the country.

Heavy influence on culture— A quote from Von Eckert: “As the nation’s center of broadcasting, book and magazine publishing and the arts, Megalopolis largely determines America’s cultural tastes.”

The proliferation of the trend toward Megalopolis has manifested itself today in the rise of other megalopolitan areas throughout the nation. In a 2005 study, two Virginia Tech professors New Balance Mrl996lhd Sneaker Herren
on what can be considered a megalopolitan area:

Based off of their guidelines, the researchers labeled nine more megalopolitan areas—two in the Southeast, three on the West Coast, one in the Midwest, and two in the Southwest.

You can see the rise of these megalopolitan regions on this population density map, using data from the 2010 census (each dot represents a person). The original Megalopolis is still intact, but similar regions have developed throughout the country.

The rise of these additional megalopolitan regions has been accompanied by a slowing in the growth of the original Megalopolis, as data from the 2010 census shows . Though the Northeast is still growing today, its population growth from 2000 to 2010 was a mere 3.2 percent, compared to a whopping 13.8 percent growth in population in the West and 14.3 percent in the South.

As the population nationwide continues to grow, increased megalopolitan development is becoming evident. And planning for the future of these new megalopolitan regions is already under way .Indeed, Von Eckart hinted in 1964 at the continued proliferation of megalopolitan regions in the future, with Megalopolis as the basis:

Megalopolis is the laboratory of a new urban way of life which is sweeping the civilized world.

Socialism is a common-sense path to a fairer, more prosperous and more democratic USA. Socialism is also a desperate necessity as capitalism and its unrelenting drive for profits threaten to make our planet uninhabitable. Working families in America – the 99% - between us create all the products and services that make our country the richest nation in the history of humankind. It doesn’t make sense that these collectively produced resources are owned and controlled by a tiny handful of billionaires. The fight for socialism is a dynamic process to fulfill the vision of a future of peace, justice and fairness for our nation and our world.

My own shirttail relative : the late Mayor Anton J. Cermak (third from the left).

The idiom shirttail relative , rarely heard nowadays, refers to someone who is distantly related and often forgotten.

The phrase came up when my wife, who was tracking Hurricane Irma on her computer, looked up from the screen and distractedly asked if I had any relations in harm’s way. ”Maybe. Just a few shirttail relatives,” I replied. To which she responded, “What’s that?”

What’s that? Indeed.

Origins

The etymological record of shirttail relative is sparse. According to Merriam-Webster ’s online dictionary, the word shirttail first appeared in 1809, and was used, as it is today, to describe the bottom part of a shirt that is tucked into trousers. But to get to the idiomatic use of “shirttail” in the expression shirttail relative , we turn to British master word-detective Michael Quinion who’s website quotes the following from the Dictionary of American Regional English ( DARE ):

“A 1922 book about the Appalachians remarks ‘it still is common in many districts of the mountain country for small boys to go about through thesummer in a single abbreviated garment and that they are called ‘shirt-tail’boys.’ ”

I’m only surmising, but perhaps the image conjured up by the term shirt-tail boys, of Americans living in so remote a locale as to be almost foreigners, made other Americans associate s hirttail with distant relatives, and sure enough, again according to Mr. Quinion:

DARE has examples from 1927 forwards, such as shirt-tail kin and shirt tail cousin , as well as [ shirttail relative ].”

Another idiomatic use of shirttail , cited by the online Free Dictionary , describes the adjectival use of the word as denoting something “of little value; inadequate or small.” Here I’m guessing that the above definition emerged from a common opinion that this part of a shirt’s structure was considered plain and inconsequential; after all, once a shirt is worn and tucked in, the wearer cannot even see his or her shirttail and may soon give little thought of it. Which, when you think of it, is a way of describing long-lost-from-memory relatives.
