A stroll across the Chowringhee, from the Park Street crossing to the Lenin Sarani crossing, will give the tourist a feel of everything - Imperial British architecture in scores of buildings, the bazaar culture of Indian cities through the hawkers lining the pavements, street food, fast food and fine dining options, good watering holes, a huge museum, the YMCA, a premier Government College of Art, a 5 star hotel that is also architecturally famous and lots of people.
In its bylanes are the famous Hogg Market(now known as New Market) and several budget staying options on Sudder Street, including the Fairlawn Hotel, made famous by the Kendalls and then Shashi Kapoor.
Just beware of the hustlers that are sure to be found in such places.
