Sano - the showpiece: station front
The road leading straight down from the station, past City Hall. It has been planted as an avenue, and stripped of its wires.
The new station forecourt is certainly a success, I think. Not only is it attractive, in the "arty" sense, it actually attracts people: around ten o'clock on a summer evening finds young people sitting around, playing guitars, and doing other things I though went out of fashion decades ago.
