Street View from My Apartment

Street View from My Apartment

Here is the view of the corner of my street, Herminengasse, and Große Schiffgasse. All the buildings around me are much nicer looking than mine! The neighborhood is the 2nd district, historically known as Leopoldstadt, which is considered to be a very nice place to live. It’s populated by young families, professionals, students, and as it was one of the Jewish quarters of the city before the Jewish population was nearly wiped out during the Holocaust, it continues to be home to a number of Jewish families including a strong Hasidic community.
