I do not recommend this read, but I do recommend my investigation into the real origins of arcade houses along Jinling Road, which refutes the "Southern China influence" theory. And here is my older post – or rather, lonely hysterical cry – about the destruction of this inimitable historic street. "Revamping" – what a bad, bad word for Shanghai. Don't let those plutocrats and their pet hacks play with your brain.
