Langstrasse is the queer side of Zurich, with street prostitution, drug dealers and bizarre shops. Here are the bizarre shops.
A night club, maybe?

An elusive presence. Many of the bronze and granite statues in the streets and parks of Zurich have populated the city for almost a century. The artworks of local and foreign artists rightfully acquired the honorary citizenship. Whether women in skimpy clothes or young nude boys, everyday human being is elevated to symbolic heights. A photographic exhibition that invites not only to look at but also to look inward.
Find more at the official Photobastei website (auf Deutsch), on the website of Centro Italiano di Cultura in Zurigo (in italiano) or download the flyer in English.
