mostly I agree, although it should be mentioned that neighbourhood (or
other place boundaries like quarter and suburb) may be very clear although
they aren't officially declared: when they are hard "natural" borders like
railroads, rivers, motorways, etc. Also a change in the urban structure
(urban confuguration, architectural style, living standards, socially /
ownerstructure, etc.). can mark a border very strongly in some instances,
without it having to be an administrative boundary.
