Tram track concerto. Wonderful to leave Town Hall of an evening and see the crowds gather to enjoy public life & some music. Captivating scenes becoming the norm in George Street, will be interesting to see when light rail finally runs #publicsydney #georgestreet #sydney #centralsydney #lightrail #publiclife #publicspace #streetlife #flaneur #tramtracks #cityforall #busker #impromptuconcert #righttothecity

Exploring Alexandria came across this fine new apartment complex nearing completion (opp Sydney Park).
