Out goes Fleet Street

The makers of Monopoly have unveiled a new version for the Christmas market, designed to reflect modern London. Out goes Fleet Street and stuffy old Strand. In comes funky, fashionable Primrose Hill and Portobello Road
- Why did the journalist put "out" before "goes"
- What does "old Strand" refer to?
- What does "in comes funky" refer to? I understand every word, but I am lost about the phrase.
- Why did the journalist mention about Primrose Hill and Portobello Road?
Re: Out goes Fleet Street
When a company decides to swap a product for a new product then we can say that the old product "goes out" and the new product "comes in". These phrases can be reversed, giving "Out goes the old product, in comes the new product."

"The Strand" was a property on the original Monopoly board - it's a famous street in London. It is not going to appear on the new version of the game so it has "gone out".
Basically, "The Strand", and presumably at least one other place in London which used to appear, have been replaced by Portobello Road and Primrose Hill.
