Abstract

A city's borders do not simply delineate its territorial limits. Whereas the urbanized center; as the main locus of the city's economic infrastructures and political symbolisms; defines the city and makes it recognizable to both residents and non-residents; borders provide a haven of sorts to elements of the urban underside. While boundaries separate contiguous towns from one another; they also create corridors of urban activity that are radically different from those in the center; straddling both sides of the border.
