wannaseeit saidYeah I lived in berlin. Mostly near schoneberg, and then prenzlauer berg.
Close to Tempelhof in Schoneberg? I used to go to the airfield weekly, to meet shipments from the US. The original Flughafen had a wonderful art-deco-era officers club the USAF operated, called the Marine Bar because it had a nautical theme, that evoked being aboard an ocean liner from the 1930s.
I don't recall being in Prenzlauer Berg, which was in the Soviet half of the city. I was entitled to travel there as a US Army Officer (only in uniform), but in reality the US command kept us on short leashes when visiting the Communist side. I merely did a little sightseeing and souvenir shopping, and attended some Freundschaft formal dinners with our Soviet Army counterparts.
