There’s a nice buzz heading down Quay Street in Ultimo toward UTS. You’ll find a young university crowd grabbing coffees at one of the suburb’s funky new joints, or some noodles in nearby Chinatown, or they’re just milling about in the sun on the way to class. For a student or recent grad seeking an interesting and upbeat inner-city vibe, Ultimo and Haymarket seem like really attractive options.
