"... it's often hard to get away from the omnipresent, flat, overhead view in the mapping conversation. There is no coincidence to that as it speaks to human desire to see everything in an attempt to "know" the city. Remembering the orientational metaphors, to "know" means we must rise up, transcending the muck of the street to see the city from where it cannot reach us. From a distance, the city can be properly idealized. Of course, this kind of knowledge reduces 'the city' to an abstraction..." - Carlisle
