Social psychology and the way it has been expressed through symbolism will be looked at intently to come up with a well-researched project that covers the topic. Historical connections that have been there since time immemorial shall also be evaluated in the project to better understand the concept of urban sociology. Los Angeles will be my first
The church of Los Angeles is a significant part of the peoples’ lives in this region. It has been there for a long time as I learnt it was established in the 19th century by Franciscan Fray Luis Gily.

The History of San Marino is expressed by the presence of archaic buildings such as the old mill and the Huntington Library. These are some of the things that are used to express the history of the people and know where the city has come from to be what it is today.
The city of San Marino has a number of similarities with Los Angeles. First the businesses that the people engage in are common in both cities.

The social stratification was the same in both where there are different classes of people which are cut mainly according to where one lives and the people that one interacts with. This was common in both.
Urban sociology tries to explore the interaction of man with the metropolitan environment (Fischer, p.
