Colour­ful Grey Lynn

Auckland City Harbour News - - NEWS -

What do you like best about liv­ing in Grey Lynn?

I love the the close prox­im­ity about this area – the fact there is ev­ery­thing I could pos­si­bly need, all in a 1km ra­dius.

How long have you lived here and where are you from orig­i­nally?

I was born in Grey Lynn and have lived here all my life (apart from var­i­ous years over­seas). My fam­ily still live just five blocks around the cor­ner. I now own a house with my sis­ters in Grey Lynn . . . looks like I will be here a long, long time!

What do you like least and how can we fix it?

Grow­ing up there was a won­der­ful, arty, ec­cen­tric, colour­ful spirit about this community and I miss that. I also miss Espresso Love and Open Late Cafe.

Where’s the best place to buy din­ner in the area?

I love to eat at Conch on Pon­sonby Rd, catch up with the lovely staff there and en­joy a beer in the sun. The arepas are pretty phe­nom­e­nal but I can’t go past the veg­e­tar­ian tacos.

And who does the best fish and chips?

Pommes frites on Rich­mond Rd has been my favourite since I was lit­tle.

Who is the Kiwi you ad­mire most – and why?

Ella Mizrahi, it’s why she’s my busi­ness part­ner. She has a drive and pas­sion that I’ve never met in any­one else. It’s so in­spir­ing get­ting to work with some­one ev­ery day who pushes you to be bet­ter and think big­ger.

If I was the mayor of Auck­land I’d . . .

In­vest money to­wards pub­lic arts and mak­ing Auck­land a vi­brant, en­joy­able city to live in. Also, I would love to work more on pub­lic trans­port and cy­cle ways.

When I’ve got a few free hours I like to . . .

Catch up with friends or fam­ily, for a wine or a walk.

The spot in Cen­tral Auck­land I’d like to rec­om­mend to tourists is . . .

West­ern Park, for a lovely park to re­lax in. K Road for in­ter­est­ing shops and peo­ple, and Pon­sonby for great food and a night out.
