Wandering along the street, you will see many old locals in red armbands volunteering to monitor the neighborhood; a couple of men having lunch while drinking Baijiu (white liquor) and a woman touting for selling souvenirs. This narrow alleyways filled Gulou stretches a wide 12.94 hectares in the middle of the metropolis of China, hailed as one of the oldest neighborhoods, offering a glimpse into the glorious past of old Beijing. Though poorly facilitated, as many of the courtyard homes are not adequately plumbed and heated, Gulou Dajie struggles with the threat of the urgent demands of the modern development. With the historical value of this neighborhood, Gulou Dajie has been regarded as Beijing Time Cultural City. As the heart of Old Beijing, Gulou Dajie survives in the process of rapid development of the city. But for how long? Over the recent years, many Hutongs have been torn down by the wrecking ball for renovation. There goes a famous saying - Beijing can be transformed into New York in five decades, but it would take New York 5,000 years to become a city like Beijing.
