Stureplan, the status symbol

The main status symbol in Sweden is the neighbour you live in.

You are not a lawyer, an employee nor a doctor; you are a Stureplan or a Södermalm or a Vasastan person.

The most prestigious area in Stockholm is Stureplan: the most expensive for accommodation, the fanciest part of the city where people go to show off and try to prove that they are somebody while clubbing in the night.

I never go to Stureplan because I judge it a chicken trap. However it is a good looking neighbour and sometimes I like to walk there, but never in the night!
