  1. I am a proud Mumbaikar who has grown up admiring the art-deco structures in and around Marine Drive, the Oval Maidan, the Eros cinema, and so many more. Thanks for the hard work, Art Deco Mumbai. Thanks for highlighting our heritage and benchmarking it against the many poorer international locations.
