Nowadays, working efficiency has been attached increasing attention by all the commuters. The suggestion that residential areas can replace public areas to provide closer living condition is a hot topic supported by many. But I think it is not worth to sacrifice outdoor relaxing places to save time.

There are many aspects people should consider besides the convenience of going to work from home when developing a city. Since the urbanization leads to transfer the city into the concrete jungle, public areas, especially parks, play an essential part in citizens’ daily life which can bring a lot of greens to make the living environment more lively and energetic. The meaning of public places is more than beatifying the city; actually they have many practical functions which can provide an area for residents to do some outdoor activities to keep healthy, and for some old people and young kids, the places is where they can socialize with others to expend and maintain relationships.

However, it is undeniable that constructing more apartments is a good way to give workers more choices of where to live, helping them reduce the traveling time, by which they can also be released from the rush hours and have more time to relax. But the advantage does not mean the necessity of converting public areas into houses, because the high-quality living environment is priceless; meanwhile, many other effective methods can be regarded as the solution of a long commute, like improving the infrastructures of road and updating the public transportations.

In conclusion, although building more houses is an option to save people’s time, city planners should tend to think about the overall development to create a better living environment in the future; thus solving this problem can use various ideas.
