I always thought the L shaped one was Rat Alley. A quick Google throws up these links
Most people know Wing Wah Lane as â€˜Rat Alleyâ€™. This short aisle that extends off Dâ€™Aguilar Street truly got its nickname from the rodents that used to inhabit the lane. And no, weâ€™re not talking about Ratatouille, Mickey Mouse or any of the furry cuddly critters you are used to seeing on childrenâ€™s TV. Weâ€™re talking about the fat, filthy street-dwelling creatures that are synonymous with any urban environment.

Hehe, it does say in one of those articles that the rats are largely a thing of the past. Seems unlikely to me, with all the food that must be prepared and dropped up there but hell, rats live everywhere in every city. I must admit I got a shock when I opened a door in Yau Ma Tei yesterday and a rat the size of a small cat bolted off at high speed.
I've seen alot of rats down at the Central Ferry piers. They put some garbage outside the exits of the fast ferries and rats constantly run across the walkway. I've been waiting for friends there and they run back and forth constantly.
One time walking off the ferry from Cheung Chau a girl in front of me stepped one scurrying across the pathway!
Any built-up area.
I don't know why they can't do some decent urban planning in Hong Kong. There are at least three universities that teach urban planning. There seems to be the expertise. Why don't they apply what they learn?
Now this I do honestly find is something I do hate. The copy watch BS on Nathan Road. I did reply once - ok, copy money? When the tout said yes, I quickly left thinking wtf!
I see this on FB - a play running tonight and tomorrow based on I guess it is this Twitter account.
Ever had pedestrian rage in TST caused by an over abundance of copy watch guys? Suffer from a tiger mother? Do you know where your octopus card is?
