Every day, it seems, we're noticing new things in Christchurch. From cafes to restaurants, businesses to events, artwork to houses, there are new things popping up all around town.

What's your favourite new thing in post-quake Christchurch?

Is it a new cafe in a container, a new friend, a new job, or is it something deeper, like a new sense of community?

On the flip side, are there things in the new city that drive you crazy?

Are there have too many 30kmh speed signs, too many giant potholes, too many empty sites, not enough men, not enough women, not enough places to have a few drinks..?

The list could go on. Tell us what's at the top of yours.

We want to hear from you about the best and/or worst things in Christchurch as the city evolves. Send us a picture if you can.
