Auckland’s usually busy streets are again all but empty this week after the country returned to level four lockdown for the first time in over a year. For everyone staying home right now, here’s a quick tour of the city centre, Karangahape Road, Devonport, Mt Eden village and harbour bridge, showing just what that looked like on day one – Wednesday, August 18, 2021.
