Space is space, no matter where it is. Some spaces are closer to things than others, some spaces are more rural, some are more urban, but the important part is that you find your space that can work for what you need it to work for. The location of a space can not be ignored, with the environment seeping and encroaching upon one's space. In the end you do what you want with the space, weather that is embracing, rejecting or unassociating.
