However the visualizations are easily misinterpreted.
Yes, indeed. One of the best examples in my opinion is the photon on the event horizon, which moves with c locally, but doesn't escape. There are explanations in popular science books saying well, the infalling space crosses the event horizon with c, that's why the photon can't escape. Its a picture which supports the 'fabric space' idea in the sense of dynamic properties, but is physically meaningless.
