A few weeks ago the Entropista fired out a gritty piece of reportage about the Munich gang scene. Well, things ain’t much better in Prenzleberg. We’re not all on a one-way ticket to Spießigville here, you know. We’re raw. We’re Urban with a capital "U". Look! A burnt out* pram on wasteland near Schönhauser Allee! Bet those joy riders were well hard! A mini baby boom don’t stop the ‘berg from being one mean hood, you know.

And I saw an abandoned baby car seat in a dank doorway on Raumerstrasse. And look here! It’s the last Christmas tree in all East Berlin. These people laugh in the face of proper waste disposal. Ha
