“Everything you need right by the park”
“Great transport; Wonderful markets; Lots of green spaces.”
London in a jar of beauty, bold and peace.
The place is truly amazing, with a beautifully diverse community, stay long enough and you'll be having you're daily conversations with your shopkeeper and an occasional wave to neighbours. With the thought-provoking Parkland Walk hanging over the nature Concrete Hive you get a *lot* of both worlds, when you need some fresh air you can take a walk of that refreshing trail and pet some dogs on your way (a clearly great place to please your pets). If you want a bit of excitement take one bus, one train, one cycle and you'll be at the heart of the city. Want to swim? Tottenham lesuire center in minutes. Want to ice skate? Alexander Palace ice rink. Want to bowl? Finsbury Bowling Alley. Want Italian pizza? Papagone. Want Asian delight? Yik and Yak. Everything's in your reach with this little city of dreams, with a great mix of cultures you'll find trendy foods and clothes with traditional food and clothes across the road. This whole time, I've known not to mention one thing. Finsbury Park, a great recreational ground for absolutely anything! From Skating to Tennis, to Basketball to outdoor gyms! The park includes everything including a massive park for kids and nice walks a long ponds tree covered land's for pets and jogs. Need a challenge try cycle or jog up to Alexander Palace where you'll get the most magnificent view of the beautiful center and independent stalls with exotic and tasty foods. Go down one way off the Palace, you'll find yourself in a booming metropolis of shopping and central-ish life (Wood Green), take another turn, you get yet another park! And the peace of residency (Hornsey and Stroud Green) This area is to be left as it is being developed in the current, there is no need to add overt retail to the right of the Palace, nor residency to the left, there are perfectly divided but easily accessible sections of society where families, pets and couples can settle down, rise up or float in the middle in what really is a scaled down version of central version enhanced by the locality of it's resident, but even then once can isolate should they want to and they will be left unbothered. You are given total freedom within the walls of cohabitation and living, perfectly versatile and well structured as is. A marvel of civilisation.
There is a boatload of transport, where you'd expect central london to have alot of consistency as opposed to suburban areas, but it's quiete the opposite. The area's transport, with the 29 line taking you from Wood Green to Stroud Green, to only the Centre of Trafalgar Square with a wide array of different lines which vary in where end up, were you to have children this free transport could get them to school in seconds. The underground is amazing aswell, with alot of police making sure you're safe you can reach even further/deeper into London (bordering the outside of London!!), Rush Hour is to be expected but not on the magnitude of usual location, plus it mostly empties as the bus gets through its line and if choosing N4, you can snatch a seat early on at the bus terminal! The cleanliness of the Buses and Trains are nothing to complain about whatsoever, simply clean as can be, can't talk much about a blank canvas.
My street is a peaceful one, whilst not crazy on bin presence the lack of popularity of the street makes for a clean one, seeing as all those who travel the road are residents nothing disruptive goes on, especially considering it is mostly families and couple who live there, though I can't say much about their finance I can't say they are bothersome but they are friendly
Only 5 minutes away from me is a small but amazingly diverse street of restaurants and essential stores (down from Crouch Hill, up from the station). There's also alot access efficient public transport and if you're wiring to drive, cycle or travel you'll find even more massive high streets within minutes.
Everything you need right by the park
The area north of NW5 is very safe, quite posh and traditional, although quite multicultural as well in some places, especially around the tube stations. It is nice with children with several schools a walkable distance, and perfect for pets: it isn't rare to see cats walking around, and of course Hampstead Heath a few minutes away is dog heaven with a lot of furry friends walking around. I really like the feeling of being in a village with everything close and the park with a beautiful view on the city, all while being very close to Central London with transportation.
I find transportation very good. The tube (Kentish Town and Tufnell Park) could be a 10-15 minute walk depending on where you live in NW5, but there are buses everywhere, going everywhere in London. I find them really practical and cheap, and they run really often even at night. With the overground as well there are many options for transportation that are reliable, safe and clean. However during rush hours I would recommend the underground to go to Central London, as traffic can be unpredictable and buses can take longer than planned, so there are better for short distances.
In my street there are mainly families and empty nesters or retired people, there doesn't seem to be many young children though so it is also very quiet but still lively. The main streets might be noisy but mine and most streets around are very quiet. I have seen no problem with parking availability, bin collection or anything else, and the streets are always very clean.
There is everything someone could need around Kentish Town underground station: shops from the cheapest (Lidl) to the highest quality/organic cute shops and everything in between, bars around the main street, and every food option throughout the neighbourhood so no need to walk too far. There are also a lot of nice restaurants and shops around Tufnell Park station for those who live more north of NW5. You won't find much for clothes shopping but there's several charity shops, libraries, and also medical centres, banks, or anything needed. For events there is the O2 Forum, and Hampstead Heath is a few minutes away (the best part!) so you could easily never leave the neighbourhood. Transportation is really good as well with the Northern line, Overground, and buses going everywhere in London. NW5 is the perfect place to have a more relaxed lifestyle, by the park, with quiet streets but every amenity a short walk away - all while living only 20 minutes from central London and a walking distance from Camden. It might not be as vibrant as other London neighbourhoods though, maybe more adapted for families and professionals than students.
Great transport; Wonderful markets; Lots of green spaces.
Regeneration would be the best thing, but the atmosphere is fine
The transport is great. There's a overground station just under 10 mins from me and i feel like i don't want to walk i can just take the bus which is like 3 stops and also quicker.
There's a lot of antisocial behaviour to be honest... around here is mostly families and students this area is not really recommended for couples.
Well in my area theres quite a few off licence shops there's also 2 sainsbury's which are very well situated we got around 3 bars to watch football to be entertained not the best quality but does the job
It’s really nice you have all you need around the area
