Ian Judd Introductory Sociology Prof. Barbara Katz Rothman December 6 th , 2007 Sidewalk The New York City sidewalks of Greenwich and 6th Avenue are both the homes and workplace of many homeless people. These people are the focal point of the book Sidewalk, by Mitchell Duneier. Greenwich Village is a popular area with a wide range of people regularly traveling through it. The workers and people who live there are often without much money and black. They complete random errands and jobs in order to earn enough money to survive on the street. This book allows an inside look into the numerous years of Duneier’s experience on the sidewalks of New York City. I feel that Mitchell Duneier is writing from a symbolic interactionist perspective. “…interactionist perspective generalizes about everyday forms of social interaction in order to understand society as a whole.” (Schaefer 18) “Interactionism is a sociological framework in which human beings are seen to be living in a world of meaningful objects. These “objects” may include material things, actions, other people, relationships, and even symbols.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
