Sorry but Northshore is a dank place (excluding Birkenhead/Davonport/Orewa).
I do like auckland, nice volcanos (the ones that are left), islands, many hidden beaches. It’s the people and houses that are bad. And all that money that is given to them by the Government - which solves NOTHING.
Better to give it to the Far North, it could become our Tropical tourist paradise. Or the West Coast, these places need an investment to draw the tourist dollar/create some kind of industry/jobs.
Sorry to hear that Shady.
