    Cities in both the East and West experienced periods of rapid growth, but at different points. Many Eastern cities grew most rapidly during the 1700s and 1800s, while many Western cities grew most rapidly in the 1900s. Because they grew during different periods, housing patterns and city structures are different. Eastern cities feature large areas of shared housing and mixed neighborhoods. Western cities have fewer areas with shared housing and more single-family homes in residential neighborhoods. Eastern cities tend to have larger downtowns and central business districts than Western cities. Eastern cities tend to be centers for manufacturing, finance, and trade, while Western cities tend to be centers for media, entertainment, and technology. (Not all Eastern and Western cities fit these patterns.)
