The marginal spaces with limited resources are made accessible to the low social class like the tramps who are naturally nomads.
Though desirable, it is very challenging for the tramps to adapt to the normal moral social orders like the rest of the host city residents. The major impediment to tramps conforming to the moral orders within the city is their nomadic lifestyle. Secondly, given their poor economic status, the tramps are perceived as a problem to the rest of the society in terms of space and property control (Duncan 165). The prime space locals believe that the tramps’ lacks of property limit their contribution to resource control and ownership as well as marginal economic contribution. This is consistent with Mead Herbert’s symbolic interactionism that asserts that the formations of human selves are products of the differences in the socio-economic statutes.
Despite the restrictions and the risk of harassment that the tramps are likely to meet when they enter the prime space, the tramps have reasons for taking the risks. The tramps risk arrest and discrimination in prime spaces in orders to get access to more resources and employments opportunities that are critical in improving their social status (Duncan 166). Some of the strategies applied by the tramps in accessing the restricted spaces include mobility, attachments to a member of the host population, and eschewing unwieldy possessions. To avoid being arrested by the host landscape guards and security, the tramps are forced to adopt low profile by replacing their worn out and old clothes with new and fashionable clothes to reduce the risk of being recognized (Duncan
