The city-specific landmarks used when giving directions. Urban landmarks differ from suburban and country landmarks such as large rocks, churches, farms and wishing wells.

Urban landmarks are frequently alive and a bit trickier to follow than those in the country as they may move on occasion. Typically, urban landmarks are taken from the underbelly of society and city living and may include junkies, hookers and very drunk college students.
