park square?

apparently, the area where my office is located was a seedy neighborhood in the late 80s with strip bars and sketchy hangouts... you would never have thought that was the case, if you look at it now. there are fancy hotels and restaurants and avant-garde furniture stores. read more here...

interesting, huh? how one place can change so much in just a decade... the article says that much of this was thanks to the growth of restaurants around the area, that overtime attracted more and more people to go there, thus the area developed into a center of commerce and entertainment.

back then, they tried to name the area "park square," partly in an effort to improve its image. a re-branding almost. but no one ever calls it that way. it remains a nameless area until now.
