So true, P'ter, although I could say that where I am has been flooded too at times in the past 4 months but not quite as bad as Qld

Okay it is in Australia but no to Qld or NSW and no to a park.

I can see the knuckles on my hand again ~ trust me, after it being blown up like a balloon after a bee sting last Friday, I'm starting to be all good now and I managed to put my picks in for the Hugos. YES!

No to central business district, Lily. I guess no-one wanted to play in the last couple of weeks so because it's been awhile, I'll give it until the end of the week and I'll give the answer then. Hope that'll be suffice to go looking

Is it Brunswick Street, Melbourne , a street in inner northern Melbourne, known for cafés, live music venues and alternative fashion shops. ...
And is that the Provincial hotel???

I'm sure there's more to your pic than that, but this is what I've found so far

As you asked for a clue - it is near a bookstore that I'm sure the Americans would know and it does have cafes and fashion shops Actually I'll give you 2 clues - it's a place that I found a dragon in too

And NO it isn't in Brunswick St.
