Taihape New Zealand

The locals say it is the center of the universe.

View of the center of the metropolis.
Uncountable 2 storey buildings. (OK, more buildings than I have fingers.)


Classy sculpture


New York's got nothing on this place.

If it is the centre of the universe then it should be the first.

Good grief, I never thought I'd see an Urban Showcase thread on this tiny little place!

Can I just ask what posessed you to go through here and take photos?!

You pass through this place on the way to the Central Plateau where there are volcanoes and skiing. So it wasn't a destination, but a good place for lunch.
