The literal translation of Kodbyen means “the city of meat”. As well as the famous Meatpacking District of New York it was a zone of the city where the enterprises that manufactured meat derivatives used to be. So the former slaughterhouses are now transformed into restaurants, discos, shops and art galleries that have hardly changed their decoration. But in contrast to what happens in other similar places of the world, meat industry still takes place in that area, though to a lesser extent.
