Murray: “Cities historicize space”


Janine Adank contributes a quote for us!

As a general rule, cities are always experienced in space but studied in time. In other words, cities historicize space. As sites where the duration and depredation of objects, persons, and memories take place in time, cities are haunted by their own histories. In this way, they not only stretch across time but also extend through space.
