What I can see
Before the construction of the metro station, the area of Panormou was not well known. With the arrival of the metro there was an “explosion” of cafes, food shops (restaurants, taverns, take away) and some laid-back bars opened. Most of the clients are students, mainly from the University of Athens and the Technical University, as the campuses are relatively close by. In addition to the many visiting students, there are also many students who live in the area, as well as several immigrants from the Philippines. Although it could have become a “hub” of intense nightlife, a milder form of nightlife has been preserved, which is friendlier to the residents.
What I can't see
The name of the metro station comes from the homonymous street, whose name was given by Greek refugees from Panormos in Asia Minor, who settled in the area of Ampelokipi. Before the construction of the metro, however, the area was not called Panormou, but Ampelokipi, like the whole district. With the metro, the name of the neighbourhood was informally changed, which shows that the metro not only changes the life, mobility and structure of the urban space, but also creates new reference points.
