CITY, government. A town incorporated by that name. Originally, this word did not signify a town, but a portion of mankind who lived under the same government: what the Romans called civitas, and, the Greeks polis; whence the word politeia, civitas seu reipublicae status et administratio. Toull. Dr. Civ. Fr. 1. 1, t. 1, n. 202; Henrion de Pansey, Pouvoir Municipal, pp. 36, 37.

To see a city in your dream, signifies a sense of community and your social environment. To dream that you are in a deserted city or that you feel alienated from the activity of the city, then it suggests that you feel rejected by those around you. To see a city in ruins, denotes that you are neglecting your social relationships and allowing them to deteriorate.Bowery, Chinatown, East End, East Side, Kreis, Little Hungary, Little Italy, Stadt, West End, West Side, archbishopric, archdiocese, arrondissement, bailiwick, banlieue, barrio, bishopric, black ghetto, blighted area, boom town, borough, bourg, burg, burgh, burghal, business district, canton, central city, citified, city center, civic, commune, congressional district, constablewick, conurbation, core, county, departement, diocese, district, downtown, duchy, electoral district, electorate, exurb, exurbia, faubourg, ghetto, ghost town, government, greater city, greenbelt, hamlet, hundred, inner city, interurban, magistracy, market town, megalopolis, metropolitan, metropolitan area, midtown, municipal, oblast, okrug, oppidan, outskirts, parish, polis, precinct, principality, province, red-light district, region, residential district, riding, run-down neighborhood, see, sheriffalty, sheriffwick, shire, shopping center, shrievalty, skid road, skid row, slum, slums, soke, spread city, stake, state, suburb, suburban, suburbia, suburbs, tenderloin, tenement district, territory, town, township, uptown, urban, urban blight, urban complex, urban sprawl, urbs, village, ville, wapentake, ward
