Today, Stefanie and I strolled in and around the E&C shopping center. The first floor is busy and alive, but on the second floor is quite quiet and empty relatively. I guess maybe the administrators are hard to find people to hire the spare space or they reject to rent these space because of the shopping center will be rebuilt soon,
Actually, we can see that the shopping center is an important landmark in Elephant and Castle. It connects with the tube station, every passenger may have a relationship with the center or just go through it. Also, there were some teenagers sit together chatting. I think this place is an assembly station for the local community. It could for lunch break, chatting, shopping, waiting for someone, etc. Anyway, although many people think this shopping center is dirty and chaos, for some people who usually “use” this place is their memories and habitual recreational space.
