for better or for worse?

Standard

You could look at it like this, The Block at Redfern, (Sydney, NSW, Australia) is a marriage of cultures with a raft of problems and resultant changes are afoot, some for the better, some for the worse, a bit like marriage vows that didn’t work out…

“The Block has historically been the subject of large protests, starting in the early 1970s”…” is viewed by the largely rural indigenous population of NSW as a pied a terre and spiritual home in Australia’s largest city. For non-Aborigines, the Block has assumed a notorious reputation for violence and crime”… “The area around The Block is now reportedly the subject of plans for massive redevelopment by private developers at the instigation of the New South Wales state government”
