A place I like to hang around sometimes because of the wonderful Regional Library, Popular Bookstore, NTUC Fairprice and the MRT. Located in pleasant surroundings this is a great place to spend a few hours. In the past, there were cinemas, shops and fast-food chains and cafes. Now they are gone. What happened? Is the building sold? Is it undergoing a major revamp internally and externally? Will the familiar cinemas and shops be back one day?
