- Remember Rocky Street ?
- Melville ?
Seems the new *kid* on the block is Maboneng. Must say from what I have heard, seen and read about makes the whole idea very exciting. The last weeks or so I have been through town and beyond a few times, one of the most recent trips included a wonder through Hilbrow, Yeoville, Rocky street, Bez Valley and onto the hi way. Wait I am not that old hey however it did seem like the late nights in Rocky street were yesterday. We have an awesome city with so much potential and I am excited to see many people heading back to town and people there making excellent use of the space and the area – I see the old post office in town is going through some refurbishing ? Is this true – we restoring some of the beautiful buildings in town ? That is excellent news.
To the drivers of Maboneng from a person loving town and the potential of it all I salute you, thank you for restoring the city, giving it a greener face and making use of some excellent facilities we have – the idea and the concept is huge well done! I am sure it is going to surpass the likes of Rocky street, Greenside and melville, my wish for you is that it out lives them all.
