“People work to reduce the anonimity and alienation of an urban living situation by creating enclaves of private and semiprivate space around themselves. When they venture out from beyond these, they must be sufficiently knowledgeable about the potential range of social type they might encounter to know how to interpret people’s actions.”

[Norman K. Denzin, Yvonna S. Lincoln, talking about Lyn Lofland’s World of Strangers (1973) in Handbook of Qualitative Research (1994)]
