Papatoetoe is an old, established suburb situated on the narrowest point between Auckland’s two large harbours. It’s a comparatively gracious area by South Auckland standards, where the names of the “old” families are still proudly recalled, and the carving up of their once extensive estates is lamented. Otahuhu is home to Middlemore Hospital, and is very close to Auckland Airport. Otahuhu was one of the first Auckland suburbs to implement a mainstreet revitalisation project. It has been successful, although some of the shops and parts of the street are starting to look somewhat shabby again. This is a bustling streetscape that people actually use. It feels like an active community. Another area that gets a lot of use (even at 10am on weekdays) is the Star Hotel, an infamous pub on Great South Road. Anyone who’s lived in the area has a story to tell about what they’ve seen in the Star, or spilling out of its front doors!
