Although Johannesburg is a large and spreading city, it is easy to travel around, with a number of freeways leading to and from the city. The centre of Johannesburg is laid out as a gridwork of roads and is full of tall office blocks, such as the Carlton Centre located along Commissioner Street, which dominates the area.
Located to the west of central Johannesburg you will find the Newtown neighbourhood. This region of the city was developed as an alternative to the downtown district and offers plenty of hotels, restaurants and shops, being safer at night. Other nearby districts include Brammfontein, which is close to the dangerous neighbourhood of Hillbrow. The northern suburbs of Johannesburg contain several wealthy residential areas, being close to both the N1 and N3 highways.
