A sense of community around the greatest park in London

I love that there is so much to see in my area, I've lived there for 2 years but feel like I've barely scratched the surface - just a month ago I discovered a beautiful cycle route to Greenwich starting just 5 minutes away from my home. There are so many places to see friends that I never have too far to go (friends from Clapham or generally south London are clambering to come to Hackney and Victoria Park). It's so easy to shop ethically as well, which is great and I never feel like I'm missing anything. The general atmosphere is that it's trendy and quirky, but not as gentrified and expensive as Hackney or other parts of London. This means that rent is still cheaper and there are still locally owned businesses. For young people especially its a great place to live that allows you to see the best aspects of London right on your doorstep.

Transport

Being so close to the centre it's incredibly easy to travel, being 5 min walk from Bethnal Green tube station (Central Line) and 10 min walk from Stepney Green (District, Circle, Hammersmith and City). Also a huge amount of buses including the 8 which heads to the city centre. On top of this, there are many good cycling routes nearby both for pleasure and commuting, although cycling around Bethnal Green itself can be a bit scary.

Community

Living in a block of flats I feel safe and have nice neighbours (mostly young families), mostly renters around. There is a huge sense of community, and Roman Road is a centre of culture and there is always something interesting going on. Parking is available nearby but it can be tricky without a permit during busier times.

Amenities

Really close to lovely parts of London such as Hackney Central, Homerton, Brick Lane, and the wonderful Victoria Park with its huge market, so there's rarely any need to shop online. Also a variety of cheap supermarkets and a huge Sainsbury's about 15 min walk away. Lots of great pubs and bars, and plenty of good restaurants with options for dietary requirements.

The local council, specifically Tower Hamlets Homes has a reputation to be improved

Most liked - Victoria Park along with other open and green spaces. Least liked - reputation of the local council along with their customer service. Overall, a great and friendly atmosphere. A very wide ranging demographic, but one that generally lives in tranquility alongside each other. The area is well-suited for pets and children, as much as any average area inside the M25 if not more.

Transport

E2, E3 and E14 are all well served by public transport. Transport for London has 5 rail lines, some of which offering night-tube services, running on its network here: - Central Line - Hammersmith & City - Jubilee - Overground - DLR Alongside the tube there are many buses, with night-services also operating. All TfL services in these parts of London are reliable, regular and clean. In addition there is a well-functioning highway system for road users. This includes the Cycle Superhighway for the safety and convenience of cyclists.

Community

In my area the bins are regularly collected. There is ample parking, traffic noise is generally limited to daytime and relatively little anti-social behaviour. My area and street has a wide-ranging demographic. Native and life-long inhabitants, recent immigrants - of first, second and third generations - as well as students and professionals. There are people of all ages and circumstances - single people, couples and families.

Amenities

I live in E2, I work in E14 and spend time in E3. All areas are great and have their own character. E2 is my favourite area in London, with a good range of shops, restaurants, bars and various open spaces. This includes the famous Victoria Park, which has the award-winning status status as the nation’s favourite park in numerous years. All areas have been gentrified in recent decades, though E2 perhaps shows the best of the old alongside the new. You’ll still find a typical Bethnal Green style pub such as the Salmon & Ball or The Hare, but you’ll also find more hipster takes on alcohol-serving venues such as with the Dundee Arms and the sultry Satan’s Whiskers. In E3 you’ll find many chain restaurants - Subway, Nando’s, KFC etc alongside some more independent fast-food outlets. This serves the student population of nearby Queen Mary University well. E14 has had undergone the most development and is home to Canary Wharf, one London’s two financial districts. You don’t have to work there to take a trip out though, and you’ll find many great restaurants such as the Big Easy offering meals with waterside views. There’s also a wealth of opportunities - shops, restaurants and bars - on offer in the Canary Wharf Shopping Centre.

Cheap and Livable

In need of regeneration

Transport

2 major train stations, one 5 min walk away (Whitechapel) and the other 10min walk away (Bethnal Green). Both are not clean but are reliable with train timings.

Community

Lots of parking, dependable bin collection, little bit of anti-social behaviour but not a big deal, little traffic noise, people living on my street are mostly families

Amenities

Range and quality of local shops: gigantic Sainsbury 5min walking away with all groceries, pharmacy, etc inside. Range and quality of local restaurants: Nandos is very good for eat-in dining 10min walking going south, and some decent restaurants (South American, British, etc) 15min walking away going north.
