Is it just me or has anyone felt the same that many of Melb high streets are so....ugly? I been to quite a few of the so called "high st" in different suburbs like Richmond, Brunswick, Preston, Hawthorn, Camberwell and found that many of them tend to have either graffiti, old dirty façade and some even look like going to break apart. Is that uniquely Melbourne style trying to be hippy? In Adelaide we have like Unley rd, prospect rd where shops get renovated and cleaned and look tidy. In Sydney, there are hips of modern poshy streets like in Paddington, Double bay, etc. But I haven't seen one in Melb. Perhaps the most modern ones are in the city.
