City scenery trea­sured

Auckland City Harbour News - - NEWS -

What do you like best about the city?

The scenery – even driv­ing on the mo­tor­way each morn­ing you get stun­ning views of moun­tains, vol­canos, har­bours, beaches, sun­rises, sun­sets . . . I could go on.

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

I’ve lived in Auck­land for five years, orig­i­nally from the Waikato.

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

Mo­tor­way conges­tion, ideally fixed by in­vest­ment in af­ford­able and ef­fi­cient pub­lic trans­port, and in­ten­si­fi­ca­tion of hous­ing fo­cused around trans­port hubs.

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

Renkon on Pitt St. It’s our de­fault for lunch and din­ner at Rain­bowYOUTH!

Who does the best fish n chips?

Would have to be Fish Pot Cafe in Mis­sion Bay. Def­i­nitely helped by the fact that you get to sit on the beach with a view of Ran­gi­toto to eat!

Who is the Kiwi ad­mire most and why?

He­len Clark – you don’t get much more of a trail­blazer than He­len, from her po­lit­i­cal ca­reer here and now work­ing with the UN.

If I was Auck­land’s mayor I would . . .

In­crease the num­ber of shared pedes­trian and ve­hi­cle spa­ces and pri­ori­tise pub­lic trans­port.

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

Sit some­where comfy with a view and read a good fic­tion novel.

The spot in the city I’d rec­om­mend most to tourists is . . .

The top of Mt Eden. Ex­cel­lent 360 view of Auck­land.
