Two years ago, I posted about Kinmel Bay in the UK and how the roads there resembled Beirut. Apparently now, it’s not only the roads but the entire community that look like the Lebanese capital:
Residents on an estate in Kinmel Bay are saying farewell to its downtrodden image.
In the past Chester Avenue was nicknamed Dodge City thanks to its reputation for low-level crime and scruffiness.
“It was like Beirut in the early days,” said Mike Nolan, who has lived in the area since 1978.
“But now it is very pleasant, and since Cartrefi Conwy has taken over it has been even better. People want to come and live here now.”
Mike is “a trustee of the community house” which should make sending him a “Looks Like Beirut” Certificate pretty easy.
