Cre­ate ar­eas for com­mu­nity

Auckland City Harbour News - - NEWS -

What do you like best about the city?

All the beaches, and views of the sea – east and west. I re­turned from Mel­bourne for these rea­sons!

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

I have lived here for 17 years. I’m orig­i­nally from Taupo.

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

Every­one is too busy, rush­ing to work and rush­ing home again on crowded mo­tor­ways. Cre­ate ar­eas for the com­mu­nity to hang to­gether – a bit like what they are do­ing at Brit­o­mart with mu­sic, art and bean­bags. Where’s the best place to buy dinner

in the city?

For a beau­ti­ful din­ing, and con­sis­tently de­li­cious food, Prego, oth­er­wise I do love Viet­namese pho and bang­bang prawns at Cafe Viet in Grey Lynn.

Who does the best fish n chips?

Natur­opaths don’t eat fried food. Try a fresh Asian soup in­stead at Cafe Viet.

Who is the Kiwi admire most and why?

Sue Ked­g­ley for her fight for healthy spray-free and GE-free food.

If I was Auck­land’s mayor I would…

Ban ge­net­i­cally mod­i­fied or­gan­isms (GMOs), pes­ti­cides and en­cour­age life­style changes within a five-day week. Every­one is far too busy.

When I’ve got a few hours free I like to.... Read a good book. The spot in the city I’d rec­om­mend most to tourists is…

The Muri­wai gan­net colony, 40 min­utes drive for an ex­hil­a­rat­ing ex­pe­ri­ence. Re-ionise your­self on a West Coast beach.


An­gela Hal­dane: It was Auck­land’s beau­ti­ful beaches that coaxed Hal­dane back to the City of Sails.
