Read on a different forum that 'Though the city..' is an adverbial modifier and not an adjectivial modifier. Therefore, it modifies the entire clause. Is this true?

@vibhav:

I did some researches and saw there are many opinions about "adverbial clause" or "adverbial modifier". According to "official sources" (grammar books, wikipedia, etc.), an adverb clause is a subordinate clause used to modify a verb, adjective, or adverb in the main clause. Every adverb clause is introduced by a subordinating conjunction. An adverb clause tells when, where, why, how, to what extent, or how much about the word it modifies.

These are the links I refer to:

Hope it helps.
