The center of Zürich is quaint and elegant with designer shops, restaurants, churches, and museums –  a classical European city.  But Zürich also has a funky, post-industrial side, generally known as Zürich West.  It is the Zürich equivalent of NYC’s meatpacking district, except that the warehouses here are much bigger.  We spent a couple of afternoons and an evening exploring these re-purposed factories and warehouses.  Puls 5 is a massive building which houses a variety of services, a fitness park, international restaurants representing the major cuisines, hairdressers, and offices.  Apparently, it used to be a foundry.  When we entered the building, there was hardly anyone on the main floor.  Being alone in an immense, enclosed space was an interesting new sensation. Just imagine turning this place into a dance club.
