[Beginning of recorded material]

Man #1: I've lived in Surry Hills for about 10 years and then I moved away and I missed it so much I bought an office here, because it's sort of combined some of the better elements of the West, with the better elements of the East and you know, I really dig it. I think the little the little back alleys are actually becoming really cool - so Crown Street's always been the focus and the alleys have traditionally been forgotten a bit and now we're seeing just more and more businesses sort of spring up around and I think it's adding to that real feel of intimacy around here.

Man #2: Surry Hills is really great at working with what they've got like we're all on top of each other, so we we try our best to get on and and have the most fun we can and do the best we can with the space we have.

Man #3: Great food for lunch, always get great coffee, there's a sort of a bit of a community atmosphere - kind of you don't know people but you feel like you might. Yeah it's a nice it's a nice place to hang around.
