Feel And Scale Of Earlier Times

“[Auckland’s] downtown is dominated by 21st century high-rises, but neighbourhoods like Ponsonby retain the feel and scale of earlier times,” Allan Seiden writes for the Hawaii Reporter, “with galleries and boutiques to browse and eateries to enjoy.” “My most impressive Auckland ‘find’ was the island of Waiheke, a scenic 45-minute ferry ride to the east of downtown. Closer at hand, Devonport preserves a village feel, making it nice for an afternoon visit and dinner, with an evening ferry ride back to downtown, the night-lit skyline reflecting the gulf’s dark waters.”
