I WENT TO DOCKVILLE YESTERDAY …

… and found the location in a kind of run-down state. The area is large and at the moment not open for visitors. Therefore I took some pics from the other side of the fence and enjoyed the neighbourhood which is also very interesting. You can read about DOCKVILLE here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dockville

As far as I understood they plan an art festival this year in summer again.
