Postcode 2010 covers the inner city areas of Darlinghurst, East Sydney and Surry Hills. I live in East Sydney, a small area between Darlinghurst and Hyde Park. It has a colourful past- think Tilly Devine and the Razor Gangs of the 1920s- but is becoming gentrified with an abundance of coffee shops, hair dressing salons, yoga classes and small bars.
The residents are pretty friendly and a good mix, there are families, singles, artists and hipsters, dogs and cats. Small terraces sit side by side with apartment blocks and many of the old warehouses and motor repair shops are being converted into desirable residences. It is a great part of postcode 2010 and I wouldn’t live anywhere else.
