Name[edit]

"Alexander Platz" is not the correct German name: in German it is "Alexanderplatz". Is there any good reason for calling it "Alexander Platz"? "Platz" is not English .....
S.

You are correct. Moved. --mav

Images[edit]

The link to the photos was broken, so I removed it. - J.P

Problem with pic[edit]

The pic Alex06.jpg from the commons shows a man instead of the place. But you can see the right pic if you view it directly in the commons. wtf? --217.83.74.93 18:54, 27 April 2007 (UTC)

Please return the page to its previous state should an edit have undesired results. I mistook the incorrect picture for vandalism at first. 11.ninjas 23:21, 28 April 2007 (UTC)

The old pic from 2003 is no more correct, the place has been redesigned in the last years. And the pic alex06.jpg from the commons shows an actual imagae. Reverting is not a solution. The link to commons works: http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Image:Alex06.jpg --217.83.41.182 23:44, 28 April 2007 (UTC)

- the text we just uploaded is a translation of corresponding article on German Wikipedia--Batman9292 (talk) 12:41, 17 December 2012 (UTC)

Rotes Rathaus and Pressecafe[edit]

I changed the link to Rotes Rathaus so that it just shows the German name. The reason I think it is better to have the name in German is that the building is called that because it's made out of red brick, but in an article about the city center of the old East Berlin, it isn't clear that "Red City Hall" has nothing to do with Communism. I could have changed it to "Rotes Rathaus, the 1869 "Red City Hall"", but I felt it would unbalance the very short lead.

Also, the photo of Pressecafe with the old "Marxist view of the press" murals says the murals were covered over by commercial advertising. I expected that meant Coca-Cola and McDonalds ads. I looked it up on Google Street View; the Pressecafe sign is intact and the site of the former murals is a sign for a restaurant. So I think a modern view would be interesting to include.
