Another Sunday’s wandering… my neighborhood walking west a few blocks to Karl Liebknecht. The corridor between Moll Strasse/Landsberger Allee and the Karl Marx Allee, which consists of a Plattenbau cluster or two, but mostly empty space for rent.
There are miriad Big Dreams of tearing this all down and building skyscrapers. Surely, more than one of the pictured buildings’ days are numbered.
I somehow find the buildings kind of cool. Commie office buildings. The old steaming coffee cup is just about as cool as it gets…to have seen it all lit in neon in its day!
Today, unfortunately, it all falls into the Burst Asunder, Gentrifizierung catagory that Berlin’s super left is revolting against, especially in the last week since the police evicted a squatter house around since the 1990. Stay tuned for an article on that one, for now here’s a slide show.
