Newtown – How I Love Thee

Below chronicles the first impressions of living in Newtown.  Much has changed and I’ve had a new understanding and respect for my home in Newtown but first impressions remain.  Love at first sight?  Yes, truly.

Counting the ways:

1) Enmore Theatre on a concert night, swarming with enthusiasts

2) Countless restaurants on King Street with their world cuisines

3) Holier-than-thou emo kids on your streets

4) The way your old and frail infrastructure gives up

5) Gorgeous pedigree dogs with perfect grooming and their no-life owners

6) Colourful characters on the streets who would be hauntingly tragic if only they weren’t so quirky

7) The way lipstick Lesbians are dispersed sparingly among the truly scary hemales

8) Insipid Hare Krishna food on weekdays with generosity of portions

9) Homes with flair of yester-decades

10) Enmore Road with its run-down shops playing a sad second fiddle to King Street

I live in Newtown. I love Inner West. But I can love other neighbourhoods as well.
