Abstract

This article concerns the geographical interpretation of the reactions of fear and insecurity as experienced by the aged people in two Montreal neighborhoods. The results of an interview conducted between November 1977 and March 1978 demonstrate that these emotions are in part a function of the spatial disposition of structures and in part the result of the psychological and socio-economic pecularities of those interviewed.
