‘Twenty years ago no one wanted to live here because of the junkies walking around the neighbourhood. Since then much work has been done, the Red Light District is a lot cleaner. On the other hand tourists make my neighbourhood a lot more crowded. I really hate the boisterous shouting and laughing of drunk visitors. It keeps getting worse.
But I’m not going to move. I’ve got everything I need close to me. The tram is just around the corner and the central station is only a 5 minute walk away. And I like that the Red Light District feel like a small village where the neighbours know each other. I’m never going to give it all up for a home elsewhere, because I won’t feel as save there as I do now.
