“I feel as though gentrification introduce a different vibe to the area”
My perspective of the area i grew up in, and continue to grow in
In recent times i feel like the area has gotten better in some places and worse in others, for example, Brecknock Road isn't what i remember it used to be, over time its seems as though the area has gotten more and more neglected but in other areas it has gotten better with the main reason being the anti social behaviour has gone down substantially. Another complaint is the lack of park of exercise areas available locally. I wouldve liked there to be a track locally that i could exercise on or just more open areas in general.
Transport is very readily available. At all times you are no further than 2 minute walk away from a bus stop, and you have Kentish Town Station and Tufnell Park Station close by as your link to the underground, with both stations only being a couple or a few stops away from Kings Cross and Euston Station. Both stations run on the Northern Line, which, in my opinion, is the most convenient line.
Parking availability is very good if you want yo park on the road. You will of course need to have a permit to park and parking is free on weekends and free after 6pm on weekdays. Times at which you will most definitely find a free spot close to your destination. Anti-social behaviour on a positive note has improved immensely in recent times. It wasnt extremely bad, but never the less has improved vastly. In terms of traffic noise, you have nothing to worry about, roads are quiet during the day and the only main road, Brecknock Road, isn't even really a main road and rarely gets busy, unless there are road works somewhere up the line, in which case it can get pretty clogged up. At night, it is nice and quiet and peaceful, and you don't have to worry about any shadey characters hanging around as its isnt common around here and everyone is generally very friendly. Tenants around here in the estate I live in are mostly renters, however, majority of the houses in the area are quite big and lustrous and I would expect those to be home owners.
Its fair to say the area is very good when it comes to having amenities available within a short distance from your home. You wont have to walk more than 3 minutes to get to your local shop, where in which youll find all your essential needs such as toilet tissue, milk, nappies etc. (which is a blessing considering the current situation of the UK lockdown). The the most local area where you'll find more diverse shops including health shops, pharmacy, local bakery, a few restaurants would at the upper end of Brecknock Road, near Camden Road, all of which would be a maximum of 8-10 minutes away by walking (3 minutes from my home) and there youll find a much bigger selection and more tha likely to fulfill whatever desire you're feeling. A bit of a longer distance away (no more than 20 minutes away) youll find Kentish Town. Where in which youll find Kentish Town Station, Barclays and Lloyds bank, and many local stores of supermarket giants for example, Sainsburys, Co-Op, Tesco and more, Boots and Superdrug, the Post Office (Post Office available also on Brecknock Road) and many restaurants to eat in or take away and many stores where in which you can pretty much get what you need or desire. In terms of whats missing, is having more open space more readily available. The closest local park to excercise in is Cantelows Park which in my opinion is not very good and is located on a Camden Road, which isnt very discreet for those suffering from insecurities and would much rather exercise in a park more discreet.
Excellent residential street for family/single life close to parks, transport and all you need!
My local area is perfect for families and couples as it's so peaceful and most of the houses are large and spacious with front and back garden space so we cn make the most of living here and have access to all amenities nearby. It really is a pretty and clean street to walk down with newly refurbished houses as well as older Victoria age houses.
I live close to the 390 and 29/253 bus routes which are very regular even during rush hour. Trains are also pretty regular from overground and underground, just have to bear in mind bus and train can get really busy during rush hour so best to leave with ample time although not so busy right now during pandemic. Cycle routes are also brilliant as new routes have been made along Camden residential roads. Main roads and York way leading to King's Cross and feels very safe to cycle.
On my street we have a real mixture of families/ couples in owned homes, council homes, students and lodgers. Everyone tends to get in well and knows who their neighbours are and we look out for each other if anyone needs help. It's a quiet area with most people enjoying family life but can become a lively street with music and good vibes during the summer. There's always space for parking outside the house and a bicycle shed for cyclists. Bins and recycling bins are collected every 2 weeks and the whole street get their bins out on the same day so we can follow each others lead on what bin is being collected ecah week on bin day.
I love my area because its central to everything I need. Good links to transport with bus stops nearby and train station in walking distance. I have grown up in this area and been able to walk to primary school and secondary with friends living on my street. There are several parks within the area for fresh air and great venues and community centres for weddings and parties which my family have used over the years. The great thing I love about my area is that everyone is so friendly, great neighbours who come to help whenever you need a hand, peaceful in the evenings and winters and good vibes in the summer. Corner shops and supermarkets very close by to grab essentials and treats and plenty of restaurants to dine and order takeaway from. I particularly like walking down the Camden canal in Summer and soak in the atmosphere and canal boat community. There's just so much to do in Camden, I would never get bored of living here!
I feel as though gentrification introduce a different vibe to the area
It is not an incredibly safe area. There is a significant amount of gang activity
The area is very well connected. Many transport hubs are in close proximity.
There is a lot of anti social behaviour so much so patrolling officers is a norm
There’s an increasing move towards more gentrified shops and cafés which I welcome. Kentish Town has recently received bad press as a result of a lot of crime in the area last year. I feel as though gentrification introduce a different vibe to the area. A vibe that I think is needed at this point.
Public transport- best highlight and very accessible.
