This is an interesting aspect, closely related to crime. That development you mention nowadays also takes place in Europe. That those affluent folks who one or two or three decades ago fled to suburbia now return and place themselves into luxurious new buildings and drives the original locals out, out to suburbia.

In Zürich, some time ago, there was a bit of crime in Seebach, not drastic, but people were shocked. It was not a real problem except that the police force of the city police in place in Seebach simply was unable to cope. A segment of business, gastronomy and society no longer able to pay the rents in downtown had moved out to inner and outer suburbs, generally much to the advantage of these places, but on some occasions also bringing social problems with them. Glattbrugg, in a similar situation like Seebach, but being an independent city, could simply build up its two police forces in reply to requirements. The Zürich-City police-force, as I heard, under pressure of the City Government fearing for the "reputation" of Zürich, in the meantime apparently has reacted as it should have had a few years ago.
And meanwhile the Langstrasse are is being transformed in leaps and bounds as people who a couple of years ago would be ashamed to pronounce the name are now hanging around in cool bars there and refurbishing the appartments, while the traditional "trades" and inhabitants of that area are being increasingly marginalised or driven to places where the rents are lower.

Re: Weird incident (is Zurich really that safe?)

I still think Switzerland is more safe place than France for example.

Exits from the chimney - well of course he does, he's got lots of kiddies to visit, and more mince pies and whisky to drink

Many of them possibly have moved out to Seebach and Glattbrugg. Having improved the gastronomy and entertainment scene, most of them, but some of them possibly created problems

you hardly can take it by countries. I have seen many places in France which are as safe as the places overhere in Switzerland
