Local action

Amazing New Yprker story - thanks for that. Reminds me of an article I read just the other week - the city here is opening another centre of "hard weather" apartments - toughened apartments for clients just as described in the article. They are virtually bulletproff - stainless steel bathrooms, hardened edges, tough walls you can´t punch through. For a city with the giggest narko population/head in Europe, they have to do something.

Again, fab artcile. Thanks for finding it.

Re: Local action

hey, glad to help.. glad someone else enjoyed it. Well worth the time, I thought.

Can I ask which city it is that's opened these apartments?

I heard about the "Amsterdam Vandal" proof trains they were testing.. makes the British football thugs look like amateurs (he says, sparking a european wide explosion of riots)

Oslo. I don't know how long the waiting list is. Midwinter now (-10, whistling wind, 40+ cm of snow) there's not too many homeless on the streets - most have a place to go to. God help them.
