Highrise, a 19-storey residential tower overlooking a park in Hillbrow, Johannesburg's most notorious neighbourhood, overcrowded and ridden with illegal squats. In the Apartheid era it was the comfortable preserve of middle-class whites, but now the building, the like whole district, is neglected and decaying and known locally for its West African drug dealers. Hillbrow suffers from high levels of crime, much of which is related the thriving illicit drug trade.
