There is some phobia of this street. I used to walk down it sometimes when I lived in Redfern and was walking from Redfern to Pott’s Point. I walked this was as it was the most direct route and it involves the least hills. Now I work in Paddington and live in Westmead. I used to catch the train and get off at Kings Cross and walk up Victoria Street on my way to Paddington. Some people I know disapprove of this. A third time a person I was walking with said – you don’t want to walk down that street do you?
This is all very weird. I can see nothing on this street that makes it less desirable than the ones around it.
