When referring to an entity like a government body, should it be capitalized if referring to is by classification(?).
E.g., if I write:
The City of New York requires us to get a building permit.
Certainly "city" should be capitalized.
However, if I'm communicating in a context where everyone should know what city I'm referring to (the one we are in), when I write:
The city requires us to get a building permit.
Should "city" still be capitalized?
