Great song, John. Got a tune? (grin)
One minor matter to quibble about - I don't believe Friedrichstraße would be considered to be in "No Man's Land." It was well within East Berlin, and was the point of entry for those who travelled to East Berlin by rail from the West. Can't say I have first-hand experience, though. I was in West Berlin. Our First Sergeant said if we dared to go to the East, he'd pull our security clearances and we'd be off to Vietnam.
I believe Friedrichstraße was the main train station in East Berlin. Bahnhof-Zoo was the station in West Berlin - you may remember that from a U-2 album.
It was a fascinating city when I lived there. I hope to go back next year.
