Welcome to street art postcards from Berlin #29; the morning walk edition between Park auf dem Nordbahnhof and Mauerpark. Bad phone photography as well. Today, we’ve got ourselves a long one…
Patron of the wealthy
Eat the rich
Pobre Pero Feliz – Poor but happy – Pablo ientile
The good life – TOBO
Your luxury is our misery
Sozial schwach sind Menschen ohne Anstand, Würde und Mitgefühl, aber sicher nicht Leuchte mit wenig Geld – socially deprived are people without decency, dignity, and compassion, but certainly not people with little money
It’s expensive to be poor
Sharing is caring
It’s just paint – TOBO
Time is running – Nasca
Armut ist Wegsehen – indigence is looking away – S.G. Raum
Nordbahnhof, former Stettiner Bahnhof, had been erected in 1842 and suffered heavy bombardment during WWII. During the Cold War, the S-Bahn ran through GDR territory but only stopped at stations in the West of Berlin, leaving the passengers to look at deserted ghost stations.

Entrance near train station. The park at Nordbahnhof, just like Mauerpark, had been part of the “Death Strip”. It is not the prettiest park on this planet, but offers recreation for people nearby. Right next to it, you’ll find MountMitte; a climbing park & bar.
Wir schaffen das – we can do it

A straight walk along Bernauer Straße takes you to Mauerpark, along the old wall. The architecture here is a mix of unique buildings from the 50s-70s, as well as fancy new apartments. (You can probably afford, if you were a dentist, or inherited, or both.)

Excellent! ‘Keep a safe distance from people who like Marvin Gay’ – good advice; I’ll have to remember that one! How does a vegetarian / Vegan eat the rich? I love the knife cutting a slice off the building. Very clever.
Thank you & thanks for sharing!
What a great collection of wall paintings!
(I remember riding on the S-Bahn through those empty ghost stations in East Berlin.)
Oh wow. I don’t think I did/or remember. But my mum used to say on the train “See those white buildings over there? That is the West”. Today I know they were Plattenbau, just looking a bit differently 😉
I never cease to be amazed by all the awesome street art. The whole city is a spectacular art gallery!
This is some fabulous street art and graffiti Jeanine and I was amazed how many were in English. I liked “Eating the Rich” and the meat cleaver cutting off the meat – very lifelike there. And I liked the art “Guns don’t kill people, people kill people” – Sam Crew. Well ain’t that the truth, over here anyway.
Hi Jeanine. Thanks to, erm, Musk’s Twitter, just caught up with this post. So much to admire! Keep on doing what ya doing 😎
Some great art on display here!! 😊🖤
Berlin is really a great place for street art
Absolutely! I must get over to see it one day! 😊🖤
These are brilliant!
Thank you. There will always be more!
