I have an IP address, and I want to find the corresponding MAC address. The IP address is in the same city, so we're connecting to the same network. How do I find the corresponding MAC address?

MAC addresses are used for physical addressing. Unless you are on the same physical network as the target machine, via something like a switch, hub, or wifi, you are out of luck.
