A little out of the way but a knockout for those with an interest in this sort of stuff. Covers from the 'concession' days to current era. Can be a little bit gruesome in a couple of parts for the squeamish.

Century Park
Shanghai residents see Pudong’s suburbs as the place
that grown-ups retreat to when they’re ready to settle
down and stop living in the cramped confines of a
refurbished lanehouse. The areas around Century Park
are some of the most desirable as they are in close
proximity to the Metro Lines, granting easy access to
the heart of Puxi. The park itself is a huge draw,
