Can you believe these are
actually apartments? The
stunning images of Hong Kong
‘living cubicles’ that look just
like Borg cubes

Daily Mail (UK), by Kerry Mcdermott

These mind-boggling images capture the scale of soaring apartment blocks in one of the world´s most densely populated areas; Hong Kong. As home to a population of more than seven million crammed into an area measuring just 424 square miles, space in Hong Kong is at a premium. It means that, when it comes to providing accommodation for Hong Kong´s huge population, the only way to go is up. The result is the soaring high-rise buildings captured to incredible effect by German photographer Michael Wolf in his project Architecture of Density.

I would hate living like that. I hated NYC because it was so crowded. My son´s fiance went to Hong Kong last year and she brought back similar pictures. No thanks, not for me.

Ghastly. But that is only my thought. Societies adapt. Some people can´t. Most readers here couldn´t.

For decades the US had tenement buildings that ranged from horrible to bearable. And most of our public housing still is.

The children of Hong Kong will grow up seeing this crowding as normal. Not good, but normal.

I suspect fire is the worst danger. Perhaps after an earthquake stops electricity and breaks water mains and topples buildings.

Compared to Manhattan - from Wiki:

New York County is the most densely populated county in the United States, and one of the most densely populated areas in the world, with a 2010 population of 1,585,873[2] living in a land area of 22.96 square miles (59.5 km2), or 69,464 residents per square mile (26,924/km'), more dense than any individual American city.

I live in Manhattan ... doesn´t feel that crowded.

I´m not positive if these numbers all add up, but using gross numbers, I come up with 1688 sq. ft per person. I understand that there are roads and offices and stores, etc., but even allowing for 1/2 the space for the "other" uses, that means nearly 850 sq. ft. of land per person. Doesn´t make sense to me.

I visited HK just before the handover to China. We went on a tour of some public housing, and it wasn´t the huge buildings shown in this article, but more like 10 story buildings.

I wrote in my article at the time:

Hong Kong real estate is unbelievably expensive. A decent three BR apt can cost $10,000USD per month. A parking spot costs $50,000.
These are photos of public housing, where the majority live. Each unit is 10 by 20 feet in size, plus a balcony. That accommodates a family of four.

All the photos you see are real. They remind me of photos I see of NYC apartments for those not in the 1%.

Years ago I asked a Chinese girlfriend why she would never go out with Chinese guys. Her answer was: they`re afraid to leave the city [she was a banana and loved the outdoors.]

WASHINGTON— The Army removed 588 soldiers from sensitive jobs such as sexual assault counselors and recruiters after finding they had committed infractions such as sexual assault, child abuse and drunken driving, officials said Wednesday. The move resulted from orders by Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel last year that all the services review the qualifications of people holding those jobs as part of an effort to stem a rising number of sexual assaults in the military. The Army said it reviewed the qualifications and records of 20,000 soldiers and found 588 unsuitable for their jobs as recruiters, drill sergeants, training school instructors

CORAL GABLES, Fla. — In an expansive speech here Wednesday night, Hillary Rodham Clinton said the path for the nation’s renewal lies in broadening the participation of women, the poor, young people and other disadvantaged people in the public debate.

BOSTON – This year´s Boston Marathon will have a "no bags" policy as part of stepped-up security following last year´s deadly bombing, the Boston Athletic Association announced Wednesday. Marathon runners typically are allowed to bring bags or backpacks to keep personal items. Those bags are bused between the starting line in Hopkinton and the finish line in Boston. But this year, runners will not be allowed to bring backpacks or bags, which will also not be allowed in certain areas near the start or finish line, or along the 26.2-mile course.

AUSTIN, TX.--Texas´ ban on gay marriage was struck down by San Antonio-based federal Judge Orlando Garcia today. The judge suspended his ruling, however, meaning that the ban will remain in place until a secondary ruling by an appeals court later this year. Federal judges have the right to suspend a law if it is believed to cause significant suffering for the plaintiffs. The original lawsuit in Texas was filed by two gay couples: Cleopatra De Leon and Nicole Dimetman of Austin; and Mark Phariss and Victor Holmes of Plano. In his decision, Judge Garcia said the gay marriage ban has no "rational

Havana- A Russian warship was docked in Havana Wednesday, without explanation from Communist Cuba or its state media. The Viktor Leonov CCB-175 boat, measuring 91.5 meters (300 feet) long and 14.5 meters wide, was docked at the port of Havana´s cruise ship area, near the Russian Orthodox Cathedral. The Vishnya, or Meridian-class intelligence ship, which has a crew of around 200, went into service in the Black Sea in 1988 before it was transferred seven years later to the northern fleet, Russian media sources said. Neither Cuban authorities nor state media have mentioned the ship´s visit, unlike on previous tours
