Off-cool


And yet, some of York Street can be acceptable, if you know where to look, and squint just the right way. You see, York St is off - I cannot say 'off Broadway' because we actually DO have a Broadway, and unfortunately, York St is nowhere near Broadway. I think it boils down to, York St being 'off-cool'. Our main street is George Street, and York is one to the west of that. How last-year can a street get!

York street might be 'off-cool' Julie, but these reflections are 'super-cool' groovy to the max! Hope you have a happy weekend.

How last-year can it get? Oh, Julie, you are a hoot!

Poor old York St - around QVB it is spoiled by that car park ramp, it could be so cool, it is broad and high. Save our York!

I am enjoying your building geometry series Julie. I hope someone rescues York Street from being just sooo yesterday.

You are much too hard on York Street, there are lots of things I like in that street ... try QVB (albiet the the back door), Abbey's Booksshop, Tessuit's fabrics, Tapestry-craft, a great needlecraft/knitting store, the rather pretty St Phillips Anglican church, Portico - that nice church conversion into apartments, and for art deco try the Grace Hotel and the AWA building. And if you want to go modern I think Sydney's first Krispy Kreme donuts store was in York Street. When I lived down that way I loved walking down that street.
