People had built cities...

Long before the modern age. I think if you brought someone from ancient Rome to New York, they would be baffled by a lot of the particulars, but they would recognize that they were looking at a city.

But if you put them on the Polaski Skyway and had them gaze out at the Northern New Jersey landscape that one sees from there, I think that landscape would leave them utterly befuddled as to what in the world they were looking at.
