I love learning about the history of Hong Kong and how things have changed throughout the years.

One blog that sates my quest for this knowledge is Gwulo: Old Hong Kong which hunts down and investigates the Hong Kong of olde.

So imagine my surprise when a recent post highlighted the corner of three streets that our very apartment looks down on. The building on the corner has always reminded me of the Flatiron Building in New York (obviously to a lesser extent). As Gwulo and his readers mention all the buildings surrounding are around 50 years old with the particular flatiron-esque building just been refurbished very recently hence it’s current facade. I can tell from peering through the windows with powerful binoculars that most of the units within are apartments.

As I posted a comment on their blog saying I would post a few pictures from a different viewpoint I thought I would do so here to kill two birds.

One at night with ubiquitous gweilo teenagers fooling around on the terrace of Lee Gardens Two.

And two in the cold light of day. Even the roof looks refurbished!
I should really polish of my cobwebbed Nikon D70 and take some more composed photos. Excuses, excuses I know.
