Remembered spaces

A poignant short essay from The New York Times on locations that only live in our memories.

It has the lovely image of cities that exist only in our minds, after buildings we knew so well have since been replaced.

Sort of nostalgic landscapes that we carry with us, long after the actual places have ceased to exist.

I’d might as well be looking at the people on the street and imagining all the buildings that have passed through them — places we knew almost by intuition until they vanished, leaving behind only the strange sense of knowing our way around a world that can no longer be found.
