I love taking short cuts through the alleys. They are always so private, with an interesting mix of architecture and provide refuge from the hustle bustle of the main street. I get a feel of behind the scenes: workers chatting over a cigarette break, food deliveries, garbage collection, cool graffiti, photo shoots, private parties, art exhibitions, etc. My kids always have a blast running through them, just like in their own backyard.
Next time, if you are in my city, take a stroll through the alley...but be careful, there is always a slight danger of being mugged 😜.
