SAMPLE EXCERPT:

[. . .] In his book The Cultural Meaning of Urban Space, Rotenberg seeks to explain urban spaces as places made meaningful by the urbanities that live there through creation of metropolitan knowledge. I found this concept best explained in Rotenberg's essay PRICE AND STATUS IN VIENNA'S NASCHMARKT, where he identify's different types of 'knowledges' that applied to Vienna. Among them, metropolitan knowledge: "Only native born Viennese and those who grew up in the neighborhoods can speak the dialect idiomatically and with the proper phonemic values." That is, an intrinsic knowledge of what is particular to a certain metropolis and that you share with the other inhabitants.
