Hi Gert
funny to hear you say you deliberately tried to make the scene less postcard like. There are people like Mariusz who really only take postcard shots and loves it. I have to admit, I love postcard shots too. I have so many questions for you.
these buildings...do locals live here? do families occupy one floor or maybe a family occupies a couple of floors? how does it work? 2nd...do locals view this is a 'touristy' side of Stockholm and avoid it like the plague? I'm surprised at the depth of that building on the left, the green one, it just goes on and on and on, several windows deep. So what is that? more appartments? Terrible history here with the 80 people who have died...wow. As you know I was in Stockholm many years ago, and I remember this square, but I was taking a break from photography at the time and I only brought a cheap point and shoot camera, and I wasn't taking many photo's anyways. I'll have to go through my old shots to see if I have any. thanks for this one
cheers
Craig

Default To macjake: do locals live there?

Thank you Craig,

You ask some interesting bit somewhat difficult questions. I found 23 persons registered as living in the narrow orange house in the middle (built in the 1520's). In case there are children below 18 they are not registered. Obviously there are several apartments, probably two on each floor. I couldn't find anything for the pink building on the left side but it is clearly stated that nobody is living in that deep green building, although it seems to be administered by a private housing committee. Maybe it's used for Airbnb? Normally these culturally listed buildings would be owned by the city.

I think locals regard this as a very touristy side of the city (which it is, I wouldn't order a ridiculously expensive coffee at any of the cafés here), but it's not avoided like the plague. I imagine those living here have to be very tolerant to noise all night long in the tourist season. I prefer my quiet dead end street on Södermalm.

Have a nice week,

Gert
