I actually chose 4 embeds, the reason being that I really wanted to emphasis what types of places surrounded my main embed which was The Albany Female School. This was a school that opened in 1814, within a little less then a century a W.T Grant Department Store, Albany Art Union and Woolworth would open nearby. It is not that I am curious about why these stories but rather curious on the matter of was this done intentionally or not? Because businesses/ owners knew the school would be filled with young and older women did this have a stronger sway in their decisions to open up their said businesses. This type of situation is one that I believe happens a lot now-a-days, for example when I was in high school their was a monopoly on the deli’s/ food establishments that were close by. One could find pizza, Checkers, Dunkin Donuts, etc and I would like to think the reason this was done so was because these places knew that students liked to get food before, during and after class. I’m interested in the similarities I can find with the embeds I found compared to times now.
