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.

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 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.
