Wow! Chippendale has the smallest block size in all of Australia. (“Block size” meaning the block of land that comes with each residence.) Thankfully our place has a little bit more than the average, by virtue of us being at the end of the building (and having courtyard/garden around the front and side). Still, as Life in Chippendale points out, the cramped-ness of our neighbourhood isn’t really a big surprise. It’s all terraces and apartments, really.
