Diverse shops and restaurants BUT THIEVES

I dislike the thieves around my area. They took my phone on Christmas day so I cannot call my extended family. Therefore, I believe that this area is not safe and needs more security/police around. I would not recommend this area for children. I like the shops and the restaurants around. They are very trendy and diverse. There are some green space around.

Transport

Bus and tubes are very near by. The closest tube station is Aldgate and Aldgate east station which is approximately 10 mins walk. Liverpool street station is also within walking distance. Aldgate east trains tends to come less frequently than Aldgate so I tend to go to Aldgate when I'm in a rush. The traffic around the area is typical as there are many offices around Liverpool Street (the area close to EC and E1). I would take the taxi at night because the area can be dangerous at times.

Community

On our street/development there are many renters / officer workers. They are friendly. Around our development there are ,many owners. There are enough green space around and some local park area.

Amenities

Shops are very diverse for example, you can get asian food really easily from local asian shop like yoyo. There are also loads of local Indian shops just a few minutes walk away from where I live. For clothing, there's everything you need around since we live really close to Old Street Market. All we're lacking is a Zara within walking distance. This is a big factor to me because it's my favourite shop. If we take the tube, again very accessible, Zara is not too far away. Restaurants are great. One of my favourites is Amber restaurant. Their bottomless brunch is a must have. Other that I also love brunch restaurants near old Street and Shoreditch, again a few minutes walk away. I personally love Trade Coffee and Somsaa. Bars and open spaces are plentiful. They are typically filled by office workers though, especially on a Friday evening.

A great area, with all you need to live!

The area is really safe which is good for families. I like that the area is quiet and is so pretty (Arnold Circus, Columbia Road) However, I feel that it's becoming too trendy and its losing its soul at times, specially when we are closer from Shoreditch. But I wouldn't move in anywhere else !

Transport

The public transport is very good: Bethnal Green is on the Central line, there is also the Overground with Shoreditch High Street, Bethnal Green or Cambridge Heath Stations. There are a lot of busses, going to Central London, or other parts of the city like Kings Cross or Stratford. However, some bus routes have changed in the past years which reduced the possibilities, but it's still very easy to get to Central London in 30mn. I would say that more bike lanes would be an improvement for the area, specially on Bethnal Green Road or Hackney Road.

Community

My street is usually pretty quiet, even though being so close from Shoreditch High Street and all the bars and restaurants in the area. There is very few traffic on my street which is a positive! Most of the people living in my street are families or couples. Most of them are renters.

Amenities

I have been living in the E2 area for 7 years, and I can say that we have everything we need. There are a lot of local independent shops, which are great for presents, but there is also a good amount of grocery stores,which is very handy. This goes from the small cornershop, to the big supermarket, via off licence offering a good range of products. The restaurants are some of the best in town, we have a very large variety and it's easy to have a taste of different cuisine in the area, Indian, Vietnamese, Mediterranean and much more. There are also a lot of trendy bars and more quite pubs, which can accommodate people in their 20's as well as older people. There are also a lot of friendly coffee shops. We are also lucky to have a few parks, such as Haggerston Park, with the he nearby Hackney City Farm (perfect for the kids) or Weavers Fields. The most popular area would be Columbia Road, famous for its flower market and its lovely shops. Another landmark would be the V&A museum of Childhood, which can be enjoyed by everyone. There are cinemas, libraries, good schools and good medical facilities.

I like the calm and the silence

I like the calm and the silence, this is a comfortable place for living therefore the community is good. You can walk with your pets in the Park.

Transport

It's good the transport because you can take the buss near here and the traffic isn't so crowded. In the other hand the park is nice.

Community

Well the People who live here are good but one of them is antisocial. Mostly of the People are renters who work for different companies.

Amenities

The restaurant near of here is nice but it needs more cleaning so there's a problem about the service.
