. I would say some areas are trendy and some in need of regeneration

Most people are nice and helpful. I would say some areas are trendy and some in need of regeneration, it’s a bit of both. One thing I forgot to mention previously is there are quite a lot of schools in the area, therefore, parents will literally be spoilt for choice regarding school choice. Most people have pets as well, so anyone with pets would fit in nicely.

Transport

The transportation links are awesome. You can literally get to Westend in 10-15 minutes by bus. If you don’t fancy hopping on the bus, there’s the underground, which also has an overground trains and if you need to go outside London, you can link quickly from King’s Cross station to get trains that go outside London.

Community

In terms of parking, it has now become rubbish to be honest. In my area, parking in residents or kings spots is no longer allowed on the road Monday-Saturday 24 hours for visitors, therefore, pay and display has to be used and it is very expensive to do so. Also, considering the fact that this is a congestion charge area, anyone who wishes to commute via car, needs to consider the fact that the daily rate of £15 will be required of them, so you could quite easily spend £30-50 just driving into this area. Also, some roads have now become zero emission roads (Beech Street) or for only residents (Fortune Street), therefore, if you not not exempt to drive on those roads, you will receive a £65 penalty charge. This also means, you can get stuck in traffic on the Old Street roundabout as this has now been changed to suit cyclists (numpties).

Amenities

There are quite a few shops such as Waitrose, Co-Op, Sainsbury’s local, Tesco Express. The only disadvantage with this area is the nearest big Tesco is around Bethnal Green and Sainsbury’s in Angel and Iceland is Hoxton. Therefore, you always end up paying a little extra for groceries. However, that being said, if you’re not really into cooking, you won’t lack places to eat as there are restaurants dotted on almost every corner of the streets and Monday to Friday a street food market is in operation on Whitecross Street, a selection of cuisines are available to choose from and it runs till about 2.30pm. There are also a variety of pubs again almost on every corner of the streets, therefore, people who like to hang out with friends will not lack where to go. For those with families, there are parks as well. There’s a big sand park on the King’s Square estate and other little play grounds dotted around as well. There is a Leisure centre with a swimming pool as well called Ironmonger Row Baths. It also has a spa and a gym. There is a 24 hour gym called the Gym as well. So whether you are single or a family person, there’s something for everyone.

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.
