This iReport is part of an assignment:
The sun rises over East London, England on a chilly autumn day as seen from my home in Hackney. Only a few weeks ago the area below this sunrise was the centre of the world as the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic games captivated the world.
Now the site will be closed temporarily while the Games-specific venues are dismantled and other venues modified,. Work has already begone on opening up a new 35km network of footpaths, bridges and cycle lanes and expanding the open parkland to 102 hectares. The whole scheme, costing £292m, will include 4,300 new trees, 10 hectares of meadow land, new lawns and two large community allotments as well as providing new home and a business park for a future generation.
