While many people feel that a big city is a good place to live, I believe that the opposite is true. The following essay will demonstrate exactly why the latter position is more persuasive than the former.
Firstly, big cities bring more pollution than small towns such as smog, noise, and traffic. In the long run, the environment will be damaged and people's health will suffer.
For example, noise is environmental pollution. Particularly in congested urban area, the noise that is produced by our advancing technology causes physical and psychological harm, and detracts from quality of life for people who are exposed to it.
Secondly, Small towns are more personal and secure than big cities. In small town, People are usually known about each other's personal lives such as jobs, children's name, ages, and hobbies. Moreover, people normally know who owns the local stores or restaurants. Then, they help each other to watch over their houses. On the other hand, big cities are impersonal because of their size. People cannot meet each other easily.
Last but not least, Small towns are friendlier than big cities, and encourage a sense of community. People tend to be more relaxed in small towns and have more time to meet people whereas in big cities, people are more hurried. For instance, small towns are easier to get around in than big cities. When people want to visit their friends, they often ride a bicycle to meet them because of closeness.
In conclusion, with all the above reasons, I, therefore, strongly believe that living in a small town is better than living in a large city. I definitely support it.
