I always feel disappointed when I walk this street. It is passed off as trendy, hip, alternative but the reality is that it is just seedy.

It's an interesting and very alternative place. During the day one can find some of the most exotic, bizzare and interesting things to buy in Auckland. At night, one can experience an alternative nightlife. At the same time, it wouldn't hurt if the whole area had a stronger police presence at night, since it really does get rough over there, especially late at night.

The indian & polynesian influence is obvious & with the many boutiques & specialised shope it is quite fascinating area to explore

This is a place to go if you want to see a great mix of people doing everyday things in a relaxed place with a real Polynesian / funky feel. The end furtherest from Queen street is a little bit tacky with strip places but getting more civilised these days. Go shopping during the daytime if you want something a bit ethnic and odd.
