    Letter to The Sydney Morning Herald from member of the Kings Cross Parents and Carers Association, Claudia Bowman. March 24, 2014 ...  

    "As a local business owner, resident, mother of three and member of the Kings Cross Parents and Carers Association, I can assure you Kings Cross is greener and cleaner than ever before, which is precisely why our members have chosen to stay and raise their families here in the inner city of Sydney ... Anyone taking a 'pram tour' with us and our kids (bring your scooter) can see all the recent upgrades that have taken place in Kings Cross."
