Location of the inner city

Reasons for inner city location

  • Old heavy industrial factories were near the city centre.
  • Low-cost housing, like tenements, were built quickly for poorly paid workers who needed to live close to work.
  • People in poor inner city areas were able to make use of city centre amenities.
