There goes the neighbourhood...

This will only make sense to people who know the place where I live in Copenhagen. The small rose garden outside my front door, one of the few green spots on Vesterbro and un-officially known as "Schultz garden" will be bulldozed Monday the 16'th. Old man Schultz doesn't live here anymore, maybe he's dead or in a home. According to the poster notifying this upcoming triumph of city-renewal the garden will be replaced by an area of "stomped gravel" - if you translate it directly. The irony is almost too obvious.
someday: the garden city...
