Locals have their say on Melbourne thoroughfare being named world's 'second coolest street'

In the innercity Melbourne suburb of Fitzroy lies Gertrude Street, the second coolest street in the world – at least according to culture and entertainment website Time Out’s newly released 2022 rankings. A total of 33 streets were included in the Time Out rankings, with Enmore Road in Sydney also making the cut. In an article announcing Gertrude Street’s victory, Time Out’s Melbourne editor, Eliza Campbell, said the lack of gentrification along the road was what set it apart. But what do the locals think?
