Blossom of a Gentrification
Rosa spinosissima [syn.: Rosa pimpinellifolia] hybrid in the Park am Gleisdreieck (West Park) Berlin-Kreuzberg near the corner of Flottwellstraße and Schöneberger Ufer.
The new Park, "Park am Gleisdreieck" is being created on what was once a vacant railroad property. Luxury apartment houses are being built on its periphery. The adjacent neighborhoods in northern Schöneberg that were once less sought-after are “benefiting” from the rise in value of Berlin’s “New Middle”. (The fact that is one of my favorite parks, speaks volumes about me, i presume.)
