Choppers over asphalt Sydney

Up to 8 helicopters were whipping the community with noise pollution yesterday from Manly to The Harbour Bridge and the city. It had that war-like ambience being under these hovering choppers on a Sunday.
The other trend from Darlinghurst to Potts Point and Manly was to paint buildings in an asphalt colour to merge in with the car parks and roads. A mysterious design choice to extend that bitumen-look.
Many un-leased shops and office towers embedded in a car-friendly and pedestrian-hostile environment provided a spooky 'ghost-town' feeling.
