I see. I think the picture was taken on Nanjing Xi Lu. There are very nice shikumens nearby and we almost moved there but then decided to take a typical 30+ floor appartment

These are not really Shikumens though, but old style residential buildings of another kind. There is generally more space between rows (you can fit a small yard and a car in) than Shikumens. Where I lived (Jing'an Bieshu) used to be inhabited by the pretty well-off, while the lane pictured actually has houses built in the Anti-Japanese war that were supposed to be temporary. To the right (West) is Anle Fang, rather modest houses, then further to the right you have some lovely old appartments called Huayuan Gongyu.

I think it's better for you to take a few minutes to search the new before you make such a comment. Seriously, there are tons of news report that.

Check here: http://news.baidu.com/ns?cl=2&rn=20&...E9%C6%F0%BB%F0

Aslo, I don't understand all the hamburg pictures are very clear, but the quality of pictures you posted here are all very bad. For sure shanghai has a lot of slums, and no one are trying to hide them, they are alway be there, just most people won't spend some time of their short trip to see that.

But this is very small part of shanghai, 1/5, maybe even less. You actually already mislead some people here and let them think this is what shanghai looks like. Even the pictures of NanJing Lu and people square, where should be the best part of shanghai, looks very dirty in your picture.

Anyhway, I'm glad people can see another side of shanghai. that's a lot people's real life in Shanghai, hard, but positive!

Why do you love to take the photos of all those houses that is about to be destroyed for new buildings so much? I mean one or two photos of these would be nice, but pageful of them would be misleading.

As a former long-term resident of Shanghai I don't find this thread misleading at all. Granted Rinchinlhumbe doesn't produce the most artistic photographs with the best camera in the world - I'd actually go so far as to say his 'random' street-level shots are actually quite representative of what you'd see on an average day out. As for old residential buildings - there are still swathes of these in the inner areas, like Yangpu, Hongkou, Zhabei, and even Luwan and Huangpu. Some of the early 6-storey estates don't look particularly flattering either.

If that's what you see every day, then i feel very sorry for you, you know the reason.
