Lae a skeleton of its former self

The remains of Best Buy Store
Hodgson Nagi (Telikom) Building continues to remain the tallest building in Lae
Eight Street bus stop, Lae…notorious for potholes and bag snatching
Lae, particularly the Top Town area, continues to remain a skeleton of its former self.
Nothing remains of the former Best Buy Store, formerly Burns Philp – one of the icons of Lae – after it was burned to the ground last December.
It looked cluttered and unorganised last Saturday, with people wandering aimlessly, as compared to the hustle and bustle of the past.
The old Hodgson Nagi (Telikom) Building – built in the 1970s – continues to be the tallest building in town.
Potholes abound in town and the Eight Street bus stop is notorious for bag snatching, especially from women, by gangs of youths.
There is, however, a silver lining to the dark cloud with a number of new property developments in Lae.
