Rainy Morning in New Erskineville

The rain is coming down, but we are warm and dry within our craft room. Here’s some of the things that have been added to Erskineville this morning.

A giant, pink stiletto added to the Imperial Hotel (which is now a building of studio apartments).

Rooftop gardens were placed above the Dry Cleaning and Maggie Thai, for the cultivation of fresh produce.

A meeting place next to the church was installed, inspired by the work of Spanish architect Antoni Guadi (whom you can read about here).

We’re working on a few more things this afternoon, including a giant aquarium to be placed above the train line. What sort of features do you think would make great additions to Erskineville? Let us know in the comments, or drop in to the Town Hall any day this week!

    The Erskineville doesn't want your alterations Applespiel. The Erskineville is happy as is, boiling over with yuppies and their putrid off-spring. Hostile Regards,The Erskineville

    Hi Anonymous (second one),I'm sorry you feel that way. The response we've had so far, from residents and visitors to the suburb coming in to the town hall, has been unanimously positive.People have enjoyed talking about their ideas for the street, and many of the younger people have really enjoyed seeing their ideas enacted out on the model.Perhaps you'd like to come in and discuss your thoughts?

    Well said Nathan. The renovations are looking amazing, particularly the Aquarium. I also think that Erskineville could really use a Dinosaur Museum to add some archaelogical intrigue to the place. Perhaps you should also follow in London's footsteps – now that Erskineville is so pleasant to look at, why not view it from the air with a delightful ferris wheel ride, or similar aerial viewing device, much like the London Eye?

    Thanks for using my suggestion for rooftop gardens- the lettuces look fresh, juicyt and ready to eat. I loved seeing all the new improvements, keep up the good work!L.H.
