The border fortifications extended mainly through garden allotments in the northern section of this area, but they also divided residential areas in the districts of Neukölln and Treptow south of the now reconnected, circular S-Bahn line. It is significant that for a very long stretch - from Kiefholzstraße to Sonnenallee - the former death strip still remains undeveloped and can easily be recognised because of the urban void it created. The Wall strip is completely covered by spontaneous vegetation and marks a clearly visible incision between the very different structures on each side. Numerous small wooden bridges connecting the two districts across the Heidekampgraben are the result of recent attempts to bring the two parts of the city together again.
