Abstract:

The flow of images and information on the Internet extend the borders of cities into cyberspace. One can now travel virtually to neighborhoods throughout the world. The synergy between the Internet and travel makes it one of the most successful products to be sold on the World Wide Web. But how does a city's construction in cyberspace impact its physical space? Does it encourage greater standardization or greater diversity? This paper begins to explore these questions. Two examples of tourism in New York City after September 11--both promoted via the Internet--are analyzed: the pilgrimage to Ground Zero and demonstrations at the World Economic Forum. These examples reveal the complex ways actions in real and virtual space impact one another.
