For decades it was known as Little Shanghai, a gritty, waterfront neighbourhood that was the landing spot for many mainland Chinese emigrating to Hong Kong.
Densely packed with dilapidated, high-rise apartment blocks looming above bustling neon-lit streets, North Point has long been known as one of the "reddest" – or most pro-Beijing – districts in Hong Kong.
During anti-government demonstrations in Hong Kong this year, the district was the scene of street brawls between men in white T-shirts - believed to be pro-Beijing supporters – and black-clad protesters.
On a Saturday afternoon this month, the new North Point and Fortress Hill councillors set up street-side tables to hand out calendars and chocolate breakfast cereal, and invite the public to pen Christmas cards for protesters who have been injured or detained.
But while some younger North Point residents stopped to sign cards, not everyone was receptive to the efforts of the newly elected councillors. Discussions with some of the more conservative residents, said Fu, were reminiscent of recent battles in her own family.
"At first my father called the protesters cockroaches but after the election he finally understood that what we are fighting for is democracy," she said, while taking a short break from the booth.
"And he can accept that we came to Hong Kong for democracy. Otherwise we can just go back to mainland China."
