Way back, Kings cross started out being where the lumpen proletariate hung out: artists; jazz musicians and small time criminals; those who lived on the edge of society. Then along came the strip joints, the drug dens, the kids on weekends looking for trouble and excitement. Then the police moved in to clean up the criminals, the Wayside Chapel to... More

Everyone knows that Kings Cross has some...ummm...undesirable attractions, but there is another side that's worth noting. I stay there with a friend who has a little studio near the fountain. On the weekends there are great markets with organic produce; there's a couple of wonderful bakeries, supermarkets and little cute cafes with great food. Walking is fun. There's great train... More

Sydney has an excellent fast rail system that links the suburbs to central Sydney our train from North Sydney crossed the Sydney harbour bridge. Quite a view. The strange thing about Sydney rail network is that dogs are not allowed, not helpful for pet owners.

Seems to have lost its buzz,empty shop syndrome, jaded service. Still has a certain feel but,needs dynamic injection of enthusiasm. Sydney, itself , is still great.

I did not know I was crossing this path at the time. But the coke sign was pretty cool, i wish it was night and the sign was lit but it was day. Want to go back with the night life.

There is an abundance of nightlife in this section of town. From Pubs to NightClubs and shops this place has it all. It is geared towards a younger crowd.

Totally get the safety aspect of what's been done in "the cross" but really I think the whole thing needs to be thought through. It is almost now more gaudy for its lack of certain types of night life. The city needs to think about ways to bring it back without violence and other social problems.
