URBAN DECAY - CLAREMONT STREET IN BELFAST
During previous visits to Belfast i had formed the opinion that the city was much cleaner and better maintained than Dublin. This time I took a more in depth look at the city and I also extend my wanderings to include areas that I had not visited before.
While I do still believe that public buildings within the city centre are better maintained than the equivalent buildings in Dublin I now realise that not far from the city centre the story is very different. For example there are many cases of poor maintenance, urban neglect, urban decay and derelict buildings within Queen's Quarter (also known as the University Quarter.
