Great amenities area with close transport links to central London
I think this is a nice area to live because of convenient amenities and close transport links to central London but it is not the most trendy place and there are some rougher parts of the area that definitely need regeneration.
This area is also great for transport links. I have Manor House station outside my door and Finsbury Park station is a 10 min walk away with Piccadilly line, the very fast Victoria like, and also national rail. There are many buses most of which are also night buses which means you can get home any hour of the day and night. There is also the overground at Harringey green lanes. So this area is very well connected and you can be in central London in just 20 minutes.
I live on a residential street half of which is still old ex council blocks and half the new Woodberry Down development. Because of the gentrification the area is very clean, with nice trees planned along the street, very bright lighting so at night you still feel safe walking down the street. You can hear noise from seven sisters road which is the road parallel but it is not too loud. I see many families in this neighbourhood from many different cultural backgrounds. The bin collection is very regular so the area remains clean.
The area where I live is very convenient because you have everything you need within a short walk away. In terms of nature we have a few parks around (Finsbury park, clissold park, the woodberry down reservoirs) which have been great for lockdown. We also have a few different food shop options Lidl by Finsbury Park being my favourite because it’s much cheaper than Sainsbury’s or Tesco’s. But when I’m feeling lazy I can just walk 1 min to my Sainsbury’s local to get some milk or bread or some fresh veg. There is also a small shopping centre which has Poundland, Homebase, super drug, tk maxx, and a big Sainsbury’s which is perfect for buying things for the house and personal care. I don’t tend to go out around this area as my job is in central London but there are a few nice pubs dotted about and also some very good kebab shops. When it’s after hours there are many corner shops some of which are 24/7 which is very convenient. Additionally there are many international shops like Turkish, polish, Lithuanian which is perfect if you’re interested in trying new food or if you are feeling nostalgic for home.
One of London's secret attractions
There's a local gym for everyone who wants to use it, a local church and mini mosque for anyone's religious. A reservoir which is one of the biggest attractions in London, most families tend to come. Some restaurants and pizzerias nearby. Local stores like sainsbury's who which makes living easier without a car. A lot of parking spaces and actuvities to join like sailing and kayaking for the sport lovers. Overall a peaceful and friendly place.
Luckily our area is near to a train station just down the road which most people access, sometimes it does get busy during work hours however there's a bus station right next to it which can easily lead you to your destination without a worry. There's a highway, so there's a lot of space for cars to move around which means its really rare if there's traffic. However if there is traffic there are many other routes you can take to reach your destination. Trains are regular and connect to kings cross. The station is slightly dirty however it's peaceful when you want a calm ride home or to work. The Main Street is clean, about 3.5/5 I've seen many cleaners around that help out.
There I see a lot of flat screen in our area and a lot still being built which has around 3-4 bedrooms, there's many families who come around especially to the nearest park that has playground and activities that they can have. There's a few students but rarely cause there's no colleges or universities nearby, only a secondary school. Bin collections are regular and keep the streets clean, everyone is friendly, especially store keepers. Not much traffic noise, it's mostly quite unless you travel outside. There's a lot of parking spaces, if you live in flats you've hotbed your own parking area. There's a gym you can visit and a church which means there's a lot of parking areas.
We have a local reservoir/lake which is the biggest attraction including the swans and ducks that live there which attracts families especially in the summer where most people are out in the park they can let their children play in the playground. There's also lesson for sailing or kayaking. The second lake has a coffee shop that most people like to visit when they've walked round or rest, most families also walk over there to spend time in the shade in summer. The area also has new constructions, flats that look stunning at night when it lights but up and most people buy the flats because of the view at the top where you can see the whole of London. There's a fountain that changes colours and lights up especially during the night. Local stores and cafes around so you don't be have to walk off too far for the store. It's the best place in London.
It’s a lovely energetic and vibrant area, full of adventure!
I like that there is a younger generation appearing and more people coming to the area.
Great transport links with ver easy access. It can get busy during rush hour with lots of traffic although it gets quieter after 8pm which is perfect.
It can be hard to find parking. Anti social behaviour can be present on the evenings and weekends. Mostly families renting and couples working in the City.
It’s a lovely energetic and vibrant area, full of adventure! One of my favourite restaurants is the Turkish delight Otantic! You get a lovely variety!
very quite and also very safe, however this can change in the night time
