  • Great views of, within and through this remarkable early Auckland building. Plenty of food outlets ensures that it is always crowded. The ferry building needs a further upgrade. The layout for ferry departures is confusing. And the mix of heritage architecture and passenger flow needs a clearer design. However, this is a people place and is always enjoyable to travel through.

  • An old building at the waterfront of Auckland's downtown, in front of the downtown ferry wharf. After it got renovated and strengthen, it's now houses several upscale restaurants; unfortunately, the best feature of those restaurants are the view. Especially with their price tags. Luckily some of the non-restaurant vendors are quite good.

  • The center of Auckland is here. The building is beautiful but needs since renovation.

  • Just an old-style building with some cafes and restaurants on the ground floor. Not that interesting to look at.

  • Has amazing views and Cafe is nice
