Once again Markt in der Bibliothek is right in the center of attention. When I left my house this morning, it looked like a crime scene:

P.S: shop is still closed. We would need it urgently since Vietnamese grocery store on Danziger Strasse (just around the corner) has turned into Vietnamese Restaurant number 15 000…

Berlin’s famous for its sophisticated taggers and sprayers:

Jochen stinkt = Jochen stinks (on the door)

Das Fenster zur Welt = window to the world (next to the window)

domus (Latin!)= house  (very faint, between window and door)

even if it’s not exactly a house, ist it?

Just a walk down the street, where the wall used to be 20 years ago.  In the window are 3 books to take away: “Alte Eisenwerke in Schlesien und Mähren”, a novel by Peter Härtling, and a book about historyp10102811On the path between the two walls of the former country is a broken picture:p1010287Wall … How long still?    Häh?

After “Markt in der Bibliothek” next Vietnamese grocery store on Danziger Strasse, just around the corner,  has closed down this week. It will be reopened in March as a Restaurant. I wish the Vietnamese owners all the best with their new business plans – and still don’t know where to go now if I’ve forgotten to get milk. There’s probably just one solution: disciplined shopping!

My theory is: closing down the shops around the corner is part of an educational program initiated by Bezirksamt Pankow to try to discipline chaotic Prenzlauer Berg’s inhabitants. One of these measures already failed: the new parking rules on Pappelallee, established in April 2008 caused even more chaos. See also post “Unser Dorf soll schöner werden II”
