With the end of hyperinflation in 1923, the situation in Berlin calmed down. The city's government, dominated by the Social Democrats, created reforms in the housing sector. Numerous modern housing estates with socially responsible rent prices were developed. In these Golden Twenties, a Berlin Broadway was established around the Gedächtniskirche which offered an array of cinemas, theatres, cabarets, revues, bars and dance halls with international flair. Berlin had an uninhibited nightlife characterised by new dance styles like the Charleston, jazz music, excessive drug consumption and, for the time, very liberal sexual practices, all of which led to a great deal of controversy. With the abundance of entertainment they had to offer, Potsdamer Platz and Friedrichstraße were also the epitome of the lively metropolis Berlin.
