This article tests whether the presence of physical features on neighborhood boundaries is associated with greater socioeconomic disparity between the neighborhoods and whether the types of features less easily crossed are more strongly associated in Glasgow, Scotland. It shows that they have a modest association with the sociospatial structure of Glasgow and it seems reasonable to assume this will be true of any other substantial urban area. The association is slight, however, and they should not be the basis for altering approaches to handling spatial autocorrelation
