This City that everyone was deeply attracted to for a reason other than glamour, money, power and fame, is quickly mutating to something else. A clean city now prone to satisfy a marketed state and country.
Or is it turning into a new kind of venom? Before we used to look for that dark and smelly street that had a unique scary but somehow captivating feel to it. That one street where you would make that one late night encounter.
Crime in the city was all around but behind its big headlines, something unique was being created. Artists from all kinds where making their slowly evolving debut but definitely shaping the city's character and racy feel.
Now it is all changing and turning into something that is too common to describe.
