Has Cuba Street lost its mojo?

A little worried when I picked up my copy of The Sunday Star Times this morning and found this question posed.

Relieved to find that reviewer Grant Smithies found the answer to be no, am sure it had nothing to do with the fact that his visit was sponsored by the city's tourism agency, Positively Wellington Tourism!

But still some serious questions to be asked? With so many earthquake prone buildings in the street and the encroachment of chain stores into the area, Cuba Street has its challenges. Council is taking action but we also need Wellingtonians to rally around this best of New Zealand's streets and say it is worthwhile saving.
