Te Aro 17

By | 1 August 2015

For all its advantages – or perhaps
this is another advantage – Te Aro
has no harbour frontage. Nor does it have,
at least from the street, even a view of
the harbour. But this last points to how
the suburb has the basic affinity
with the sea of being only slightly
above sea level. And, complementing
Wellington’s mysterious mid-city quays,
there’s an argument for ‘Te Aro Bay’,
anti-inundation magic and global
warming memo; acknowledging the tidal
alter ego beneath the dry land hustle
of the gentle incline to Brooklyn Hill.
