"Birmingham looks like New York" said an enthusiastic young man on the train up for a night out. "But it's really more like Detroit" replied his rather more weary friend. I do enjoy going to Birmingham and I found it exciting seeing the saturnalia on Broad Street, which is where all the pubs are. A very pleaseant weekrnd. Birmingham is getting a new library - and here it is! Although I do think it's a pity the old one can't be scrubbed up a bit.
