"The neighbourhood is so much nicer than it used to be...."

Hughes Street, Potts Point is a very narrow street and as such is one way. But there are trees and it’s not unattractive.

This are was once, years ago, considered dangerous – but now is a thriving inner city area close to King’s Cross. Obviously there are still crimes occurring and one should be careful when walking at night, but it is a lot safer than it used to be. Also, it’s more attractive as the locale has been beautified by the investors.

Properties here consist of older deco apartment buildings (a common feature of the area), but Hughes Street also has some modern apartments and old terrace houses. Parking is pretty bad and I suspect a lot of people who live here may not even own a car.

There are many backpackers in the streets near by – and there used to be one on Hughes Street itself – although I don’t know if that’s still the case.

Macleay Street (from which Hughes Street leads) has numerous cafes and restaurants, delis and specialty shops. Buses are good and King’s Cross trains are not too far away.
There are also a few parks and gardens dotted around – and many of the properties nearby (not Hughes Street) have wonderful harbour views.
