Does a city have an ebb and flow like that of the sea?
Do the movements of people and traffic in an urban space mimic that of the tidal advance and retreat?
How does it feel when you have to navigate a strange town without your bearings as if trying to find your way in uncharted waters?
Or, possibly the sea can join together a city split between east and west.
Maybe the sea can act as a balm to troubled souls.
Or, perhaps the sea can wash away the sins of the world.
