A Great area with great opportunities

The thing that I most like about my area is the people and how polite and how comfortable and safe they make me and my family feel, the atmosphere here in Stroudley is all calm everyone's happy and there's no problems whatsoever the area is very suitable for children and for pets too there's an open area where children could ride their bike and people who own pet's could walk their dogs there or take their cats out of a little walk, the area overall is suitable for both children and pet's. The area is very safe the crime rate here is very low and there is no gang violence unlike E14.

Transport

Stroudley has one of the best transport communication out of E2, E14 we have the 25 bus which departs from Bow Church Station we have the DLR and the underground all within the reach of 128 feet from Stroudley, the busses have a fixed regular time and so far I have not experienced any delays whatsoever we have busses which takes in Aldgate so people who work out of East London can go to work without no problem and traffic rate is less from E3 compared to areas like E14 near Blackwall Tunnel so for example for me it takes about 45 to 50 minutes to get to my college which is in King's Cross and I don't experience any traffic apart from the traffic lights which only hold you back for 3 to 4 minutes the area is very clean we have a regular clean up check done every week end and the cleaner is also very friendly and very polite he communicates well with others and one problem will be that there's a lack of buses at night rather than that as I said before it's an amazing area.

Community

Parking availability isn't the best neither is it the worst there's no traffic Noises and In our street it's mostly couples and families.

Amenities

So to start with the range of local shops is they are near your house only a 3 to 4 minute walk away and the quality is very good the shopkeepers are very helpful as well as very polite and kind the area I live in is a superb area I really love it here we have a famous fast food shop named "Stroudley PFC" They are named after the area which Is called Stroudley Walk. We also have a McDonald's down to the right and there is also a Primary school as well as a nursery so if you live here in Stroudley in Bow you won't have to worry about your child's school, overall the area is great and one of the best I've been in and lived in we have two fast food shops and a barber ad well as a local shop and we also have a park for kids which overall is a very good The only ementie which I personally think is missing it's a gym but that gets replaced by the fantastic outdoor gym we have in our public park which is open for anybody at any time, the area is very big and there are very friendly people including, I love it a lot here.

There’s hardly every anything bad to say about the area you have lived in for the past 20 years

There’s not much else to say other than the fact that the area is animal friendly

Transport

The one very good benefit of Tower Hamlets specifically in transport we have busses that pass through and their end location heads right into the heart of London we also have travel links via train that take us to either main line stations or international ones too. Additionally half the busses take us directly in front of the tube station which means we are never late to work.

Community

The parking in the area is amazing lots of public parking available either for permit holders or for passer by. There’s hardly ever any traffic noises as there’s only one main called Bow Road

Amenities

The borough of tower hamlets has its ups and downs but places like bow and Mile End have more negatives. On the other hand the council has enchanted the area with a lot of security making sure every road has a active CCTV camera looking over the streets of tower hamlets keeping us all safe. The 20 years I have lived here I have seen the council evolve from being a dumb site turned into homes. There are plenty of local shops near enough every turn you make you’ll see either a off license or corner shop that has everything you need for your household shopping. The area doesn’t really have that many restaurants as it’s a borough populated with a load of families. Open spaces are one thing that Tower Hamlets council have made sure that the area has for example three mills park just off the A12, perdy park, Mile End park, Archibald park the bow commons and plenty more greenery spaces for everyone to enjoy, unfortunately due to the current pandemic we won’t be having a fun fair in the local park of ours as that could increase the death rate. There’s not much that’s missing in the local area as this borough is a very large area and has near enough everything inside it which means people do not need to travel a great to go and grab their essentials.

Regeneration is happening - slowly

The area has clearly undergone regeneration but the new schemes lack amenities and reasons for people to stay in the area. It is only here to live at the moment and be deserted in the day for people at work elsewhere and no social aspects. The regeneration of neighbouring areas will hopefully bring much needed residents services to the area

Transport

The ease of getting to Stratford, Canary Wharf and the City by tube is evidently good. The roads are always extremely busy at rush hour and suffer massively from high pollution levels. Travelling north is difficult as it can only be done by road and therefore suffers from traffic problems

Community

My street is mostly renters or those in first time buyer schemes consisting of young couples and families. There aren’t many positives of living in the street, except there is a sense of community with the neighbours

Amenities

The local area lacks a lot of those amenities you’d expect to find in an area as densely populated as E3. Other than supermarkets there are very few specialist shops that then require a trip to Stratford or the City or Canary Wharf. It also lacks from decent local pubs with them very few and far between. Mile End has the majority of the pubs and restaurants, whereas the eastern end of Bow Road has two pubs and no restaurants at all. Living here is only for the location of its proximity to other places like Stratford, Hackney Wick and the ease of getting to the City and Canary Wharf. There is no reason for this area of Bow other than dense housing and little in terms of amenities
