Is there any social problems living in high rise buildings? Have any journal or article can support the answers?

@lingser_95 Hey! I actually had a similar thought a few years ago. 

My quote for this was "horizontal communities, and vertical societies" - it's a metaphor. 

Anyways, I believe there aren't any social problems so to say, but the social environment is very much different. Factors like privacy, close proximity etc contribute to how a family or individual feel and act towards their neighbors, depending on the area of the high rise this can also effect the community living in it.

Heres an article for you to check out - https://scholarworks.wmich.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?referer=https://www.google.com/&httpsredir=1&article=1121&context=jssw

depending on how good the security and enforcement team, if high rise is attached to commercial lots, even need more security measures especially if the design of the buildings "allows" commercial patrons to access to residential units, creating a lot of hassle.

also you can hear all sort of sounds, possibly any time of the day as the lots usually not so sound proof...like kids yelling, parents disciplining and the wailing can make you gringe coz close to sounds of domestic violence, then pulling furnitures around etc etc
