Bit of a warzone at times

My street is pretty downmarket, on the other hand the redevelopment of houses by private landlords has improved the appearance of buildings. There are plenty schools and nurseries for children and a small park for exercise, including playing football on Saturdays and dog owners wil welcome this green space.

Transport

The neighbourhood contains the North Circular and Harrow Roads, so is easy access for cars. The 18 bus runs to Euston and the 332 to Paddington and the Neasden tube station is on the Jubilee Line.

Community

Parking can be difficult, particularly during school run hours, bin collection is good but their is a fair amount of fly-tipping. In the last year there has been a fatal shooting, prostitution, drug dealing, cannabis cultivation. Terraced houses are being bought up as they become available and converted into studios let to tenants on housing benefit. There is no local student population and in recent years mostly people living alone have oved in.

Amenities

My street boasts two nurseries, a primary school, and across the local park with a handy outdoor exercise area another primary school and a Hindu faith school. The big local landmark, the beautifully ornate BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir Hindu temple. If you meet visitors they will either be looking for directions to this or IKEA, which is alongside a Tesco superstore. There are good bus connections to central London and Neasden tube station is on the Jubilee Line. The neighbourhood consists of former railway company houses with no pubs though a former roadhouse on the North Circular Road has a 24 hour McDonalds. Sadly violent crime is a problem with a fatal shooting at one end of my street and a cannabis farm being raided at the other end of the street.

London’s hidden gem.

I think the life that I have created in my local area is great. It is a great area to bring up your children, as there are several local high schools, which are also very reputable to attend. There are also great childcare options if you are a working parent and need that support. The area is also great for pets, as a lot of our neighbours are pet owners and there are lots of areas to walk your dogs, etc. I would consider this area to be safe.

Transport

The transport in this area is great as we have both underground services as well as overground services. Also, we have a lot of bus links around here, for example we have the 31 bus which will take you to Camden Town as well as the 98 bus which will take you to central London. Not forgetting bus 16 which will take you to Victoria.

Community

Living on my street specifically is great as there is a real feel of community here. Our neighbours look out for eachother and it is almost like living with family. Further, we have local parks where the kids can play in the summer time as well as a big playground area.

Amenities

The quality of life in this area is good. We have a mix of a lot is leisure activities such as parks for the children to play at during the warmer days as well as a lot of shopping opportunities such as TKMaxx, Primark, Clarkes and other local charity shops. We also have a mix of different supermarkets to buy groceries at for example: M&S Simply Food, Sainsbury’s, Iceland, Tesco and Aldi. We are also very close to central London; it is just a short busy journey away Oxford Street. Living here, we get to experience the best of both worlds - quiet as well as busy when needed.

Everyone knows everyone I guess that’s the only good thing

Transport

The buses are always full of people and over crowded even during COVID this poses a risk on health and the majority of people don’t even west masks.

Community

There is no good aspects of living here there is a lot of anti social behaviour which can be very scary.

Amenities

The ghetto do not recommend moving here really bad this is not the part of London you don’t want to live in it’s very bad
