St. Georg in der New York Times

Ein schöner Artikel über Hamburg, der bei 36 Stunden in der Hansestadt auch einen Vormittag in der „St. George neighborhood“ besonders empfiehlt:

STROLL ACROSS BORDERS
A counterpoint to the upscale shopping district near the Rathaus is the scruffier, cheekier, more ethnically diverse craft stores, galleries and cafes along Lange Reihe, in the St. George neighborhood. Here you’ll find Chinese, Portuguese and Italian restaurants; terrific German bread; Tibetan art; and bulky Himalayan woolens. Start by fueling yourself at a marble table in the shag-carpeted back room at Cafe Gnosa (Lange Reihe 93; 49-40-24-30-34; gnosa.de), an amusing place for breakfast (about 25 euros for two), coffee and desserts — try the ethereal cheesecake (3 euros). As you cover the five or so blocks from Gnosa back toward Binnenalster lake, note the inadvertently hilarious New Age redoubt Kräuterhaus (Lange Reihe 70, 49-40-24-93-56; kraeuterhaus.net), which sells spices and teas along with illuminated Himalayan salt crystals, which, an employee told us, “clear the air of ionic smog.”
