Describing Urban Landscapes

As is well established by now, geography extends beyond just mountains and rivers and the like, but also the built environment. And it can be easy to overlook this as we take aspects of these built environments for granted. This is all the more true as between myself and Fredericksburg.

The attached images are notes from my field notebook describing the phenomenon of spatial differences in urban geography, and at an especially small scale. More specifically, why it is that between two parallel streets in the same town such different environments exist.

And please forgive my poor attempts at sketching. I’m not even close to being an artist.
