Посилання на зображення Victoria City boundary stone at Sai Ning Street.Kennedy Town (; jyutping: gin1 nei4 dei6 seng4) is at the western end of Sai Wan on Hong Kong Island in Hong Kong. It was named after Arthur Edward Kennedy, the 7th Governor of Hong Kong from 1872 to 1877. Administratively, it is part of Central and Western District.Due to its distance to major commercial cores and lack of MTR access prior to 2014, town development is not as vigorous as other parts of urban Hong Kong; this is expected to change now that the MTR has extended to the area."Go West", Time Out Hong Kong, 29 March 2011Зміст1 Geography2 History3 Features3.1 Streets3.2 Housing3.3 Historical buildings3.4 Facilities3.5 Parks4 Demographics5 Transport6 References7 External linksGeographyKennedy Town occupies the northwestern part of Hong Kong Island. It is bordered by the Belcher Bay of Victoria Harbour to the north, by the Sulphur Channel to the west, Shek Tong Tsui to the east and Mount Davis and Lung Fu Shan to the south.In 1886, when Arthur Edward Kennedy was governor, land was reclaimed along the coast of Kennedy Town. It formed a narrow coastal strip of land that included the Kennedy Praya and the coastal area from Beach Street via Collinson Street to Shek Tong Tsui. Additional land was reclaimed along the coast of Kennedy Town between 1933–1939, but works were suspended before the Battle of Hong Kong in 1941. Further reclamation was conducted at the end of the 20th century.Consultancy Agreement No. NEX/1023. West Island Line Environmental Impact Assessment. Final Environmental Impact Assessment Report.
