Koptevo

www.gkh-topograph.narod.ru/index.htm – Most comprehensive even though slightly outdated site on Koptevo, an area east from Leningradskoye Shesse from Metro Voykovskaya. Name “Koptevo” probably derives from from “копоть” (“soot”) because it started as a factory suburb of Moscow. Even now, when factories have been converted to offices, the district is populated by ageing working class type. Recommended if you are looking for authenticity and a trip back in time.
