I have seen photos of a tightly-bordered urban neighborhood in Hong Kong (I think) that was recently torn down. What was its name? I cannot think of terms useful for google.
The area was built in a haphazard fashion by residents to dizzying heights. From the ground one could not see the sun. People lived and worked there. All around was wasteland. An action movie was filmed there after it was condemned. I think there was a piece about it in the Daily Mail within the past year.
