Abstract

Every major city in the United States projects an image of some sort or another. These images are of varying types, and are constantly changing. From these images the American public produces a concept that ultimately stands as an identifying mark. Popular images develop from a variety of factors, such as legends, stories, and pictures, and are transmitted through newspapers, journals, television, movies, and/or magazines.
