Badly bombed in WWII, the area fast became a hotspot for drugs, gangs and prostitution, but in 2005 it was cleared and became an art-haven. With subsidised artist residencies claiming the rows of tiny brothel-houses, you can now stroll the streets and enjoy the variety of works on display. Beneath the rail tracks you can find a purpose built cafe ans hop along with larger studios – host to the yearly Koganecho Bazaar Art festival in Autumn.
