Some weeks ago I was interviewed by a reporter from The Sydney Morning Herald who was researching an article about strip shopping centres. I told her that I thought Darling Street was entering an exciting time of revitalisation so it was interesting to read the article on page 5 of the SMH today which used the phrase ‘renewed buzz’. While I haven’t been around long enough to remember the trams in Darling Street I have been here long enough (43 years) to see that centres do go through ups and downs. I could see that new people with energy and ideas were coming to open businesses here. People like the guys at The Cottage bar and restaurant among others. It’s great to have new energy alongside established businesses. I’ve been fortunate to be in a business which provides constant interest and stimulation and to have wonderfully enthusiastic staff so that findin the energy to keep Brays fresh and interesting is not a problem.
What do you think about Darling Street? Have you any memories you would like to share?
