The dictionary defines progress in relation to our reading material as follows: the development of an individual or society in a direction considered more beneficial than and superior to the previous level” (dictonary.com). Keeping that definition in mind, I thought it best to start off this essay by discussing the Kirckpatrick Sale’s essay “Five Facets of Myth”.
A brief history of the town indicates that the neighborhood started as early as 1800 at the height of great immigration into New York City (Volkwein 23).

Trust in personal and professional relationships is a two-way street that is equal to integrity, honesty, and reliability. This is the best way that I find to define trust. At first sight, this definition seems to be unrealistic, but in the real world, it is achievable within certain limits.
