Manchester's City Center Is Having Growing Pains
Faced with estimates that in two years' time a staggering 20,000 people will be living right in the centre of the city, Manchester's "helter-skelter boom in city-centre living is leaving basic infrastructure trailing behind." The demands of new residents for schools and clinics are also causing friction with Manchester's numerous nightly "incomers". The widely predicted tensions between new inner-city residents and clubbers were neatly forseen by the marketing slogan: "Now the party's over, you can come home."
