It used to be an army depot but squatters colonized it and has been there ever since. Its an 84 acre compound filled with like minded people who wants a non commercialized world. They just build in the compound, look after their own plot without government interference. Hard drugs are not allowed but they do sell some weed in there. There are sentries that watch for anyone trying to take pictures of 'pusher street'. I tried and before I know one of them was in my face demanding that I delete the photo. But you can wander anywhere in the compound and take pictures of other areas. It was the only place that I visited twice because I found it fascinating.
