A mini City in itself, bursting with cocktails bars with funky names

I believe that the area is most appealing to the youth and those with disposable income to spare in order to enjoy all of the trendy bars and hipster cafes. The area is becoming increasingly stylish as it experiences a growing demand for luxury apartments for those young professionals. The area is safe for those who are young and vigilant, but I wouldn't declare it as safe for those elderly and vulnerable as pick-pocketing is common.

Transport

There are numerous easy and cheap routes into the main City (eg London Bridge, Waterloo) or toward the outer areas of London (eg Wood Green, Walthamstow). Buses are every 5-10 minutes and the Old St tube line offers Northern line services as well as the Northern City line. The cycle routes are chaotic as there are ongoing works by the Old St roundabout. Traffic is also an issue at present due to these development works.

Community

The street I live on is directly connected to main Old St which is very traffic dense during rush hour as it is a main route to the City. Therefore, traffic noise and sirens are often in earshot. Many small families and elderly people live in my street, most having lived in the area for many years. The local primary school offer easy access for families. Bin collections are reliable and on schedule 99% of the time. Litter and fly-tipping is occasionally an issue.

Amenities

I've lived in the area for many years and have seen how the breed of shops has changed. Most noticeably, there has been a surge of big names dominating the main streets – Wagamama and M&S to name a couple of recent new outlets – to appeal to the more affluent professionals attracted to the area as it undergoes development. Depending on your budget or occasion, there are a range of bars and restaurants to choose from that cater to all needs. Toward Shoreditch is where you'll find the more popular upmarket cocktails bars like Golden Bee and Old St Records, their exteriors heaving in the Summer evenings. Scattered throughout the area are plenty of cafes and coffee shops with friendly owners who love the vibe of the area. I'd like to see more spaces that pay homage to the area's rich history, like a statue of commemoration to historic figures linked to the area.

Old Street - Central, Trendy, Friendy anc Busy

The area apppers safe to me. Because it is so busy Monday - Friday their are always people about and I have never felt unsafe here. Because their is not a lot of residential properties here the local community are very strong and look out for each other. Pets would be happy here the are many green areas for dogs to run around in.

Transport

moved here 7 years ago and love the hustle and bustle of the area. I am walking distance to underground , overground and mainline stations . Buses are very frequent taking you to south London or further North. When bussing it I never wait longer than a minute for a bus to arrive.

Community

I am lucky to have off street parking for when friends drive to visit me. This is not a hugely residential area. Being in some 1 it’s Uber busy Monday - Friday but the weekends during the day is so quiet you get to see the area in a much different light. Once indoors you would not even know you where living in such a busy area.

Amenities

There are so many great places to eat and drink here. I love the Angel Pub it’s a traditional friendly place and it’s great for some cheap filling lunch. HOXTON Square and Finsbury Square are a shirt walk from me and are lively places to meet friend and have a drink in the summer .

I wish there were more restaurants and a bit quiet sometimes.

I like the transport and i also like the shops around. I wish there were more restaurants and a bit quiet sometimes.

Transport

Old street station is very close ,followed by shoreditch and farringdon. Local buses are fine , 135, 243 , 67 and some more driving you anywhere around

Community

Parkinf is very bad to be honest . Traffic around old street is bad during the day and specially now arpund roundaboud somethimes is just nightmare.

Amenities

There are many off license shops around old street but I think good add on to the local area will be Tesco supermarket . Couple of the restaurants are worth visiting eg.best mangal on great eastern street.
