“Best street in London”
“most of the people who live here are renters.”
Extremely convenient area, if not a bit boring for Central
Ultimately, I feel that this area has a village-type feel despite it being in the thick of things. There's a very interesting mix of people in the area, and although it's overall pretty up market (expensive, but pretty good value), it does not feel too trendy like Shoreditch or stuck-up like Mayfair! For the Barbican Estate itself, pets are not allowed unfortunately, although I would say it's a good area for children, as the private residents gardens have a playground. The Barbican area is very self-contained and convenient, although you do need to exercise caution when going north/northeast of the immediate vicinity, especially late at night.
Tube is extremely fast and reliable from Barbican station (Hammersmith & City, Circle, Metropolitan Lines); Farringdon is about a 10 min walk away from that station, where the Thameslink can take you from Brighton/Gatwick up through to Luton/Bedford. Short walk to Old Street (Northern Line) and St Pauls (Central Line). All in all, most of the tube network converges on the area, which is great in the case of delays, since there are then several ways of getting around! Bus routes are a bit suboptimal, but that's mostly just that they're stuck on routes that take extremely slow roads going west into central London, and their renegotiation of the routes going south of the river (Waterloo etc) was not particularly welcome.
In the Barbican Estate, it is very quiet, although some flats are susceptible to street noise on Aldersgate Street. Flats above the high-walk 'Podium' level, however, are nearly as quiet as country living! Other residents are a mixed bag - most of whom are very friendly, although some are very standoffish. Mostly couples/small families, more owners than renters (but still plenty of renters), and anti-social behaviour in the buildings is very rare, although some obnoxious, albeit non-dangerous behaviour from non-residents late at night on the Podium level has become a bit frustrating.
The Barbican area is an extremely convenient area to live - so many supermarkets within easy walking distance. The world class Arts Centre is, naturally, the main feature, and the adjoining library is one of the best I've been in. Restaurants are a bit lacking, especially on the cheaper side of things, and the area is dead (like the rest of the City) during weekends, often including shut pubs, etc. The pubs that are there, though, are fantastic and full of history. Coffee is great in the area! I almost thought that London was a lost cause with coffee until I began to live in the Barbican area.
Best street in London
I consider my street a safe area for kids, elderly people and pets. The reason is that there aren't to many cars passing by putting them in danger.
In this area we have 2 lines of business, central line at neither 15 mins walk and we can travel anywhere from this area by public transport. The busses are regular as it comes at event 12 mins. It is always cleaned and reader to receive new travellers.
The most important thing on my street is that the trafic noise is verry low almost inexistent. People are very kind and helpfull. On my street there are alt kind of people especially families.
I love the area where we live as we have a lot of Green spaces, forest and also Kids Park where we can go with them to play. I live here for almost 6 years and I am glad that I choose this area for the quiteness, clean streets, and affordable stores and supermarket. I would never choose another area to live with my family.
most of the people who live here are renters.
Well, you can walk or run in park near of here and it needs to switch the structure and the rules.
You can take the buss on the next street and the rush hour happens like 12:00 pm but there's a problem at night.
There's a problem with the general cleaning but it's comfortable the space and the neighborhood. And most of the people who live here are renters.
There's a big restaurant called "House chicken" in the next street about my house and a bar where you can enjoy each night.
great transportation system

Living in the thick of the city means there is so much to do near our flat.
