Ugly but convenient place to live
Really ugly but super convenient place to live. A bit dodgy but fine.
Very convenient. We've got the tube, overground and buses all nearby. Cleanliness is average for London transport (not great, but bearable). I don't drive, but Holloway Road is always very busy. Holloway Road is also a bit terrifying to cycle down though so cycle lanes there could be nice. There are good cycle routes somewhat parallel though which is great. It's very convenient to cycle down to the city centre. More bike shelters would be appreciated though. Storing all your housemates' bikes in the flat and bringing them up and down the stairs everyday can be a hassle and the area is definitely not safe enough to lock them up outside.
Bin collections are fine. They always come on time and you just leave everything outside you house. Not really sure who actually lives on this street. There are always a lot of old guys doing not much but sitting on the benches and talking to one another all day. A lot of South Asian families as well I think. The men are also on the street benches a lot. That community feeling is quite nice I guess. (Though it's not one I'm particularly part of.)
Great selection of supermarkets and I particularly love the wet market on seven sisters' road. They're mostly small grocers run by local Asian families and they have a really great (and cheap!) selection of produce including things that are harder to find in chain supermarkets. And unlike the typical "indie" type of food stores, they're cheap and not pretentiously posh or overpriced. It's not pretty and a bit chaotic but it does remind me of the outdoor markets at home in the Philippines. There are lots of restaurants around too that are decently priced. They're all really diverse in origin which is fun, and the food is pretty good. In terms of open spaces, there are a good number of parks. Finsbury Park is a bit dodgy at night but it's big. Highbury fields is a bit nicer. There's also the really lovely Parkland walk that's just this random corridor of green between Finsbury Park all the way to Hampstead Heath. It's like a little country walk in the middle of London... Arsenal Stadium is actually quite a fun hangout space in and of itself. It's always fun to just walk around and look at the skaters and random workout classes going on, and there's shelter from the rain which makes for a good back-up plan for meeting people outdoors during these COVID times. There's Islington library nearby, it's well-connected to public transport, and there's even a sports and leisure centre so really no amenities I can think of that are missing. The only thing I can think of is that it's really not the prettiest area and that all these things are usually by quite busy roads (i.e. Holloway Road and Seven Sisters Road) but I guess it keeps things relatively cheap.
It’s great near canals for walks or parks for exercise
It’s great near canals for walks or parks for exercise, close to busy central so great for work and such a chilled area vibe and really nice friendly people, the only problem I have had here is with how the local council are with some services and feel it could be kept abit cleaner
Close to 3 different tube lines, next to the overground and with 24 hour busses it’s a great spot to live, only takes 10 minutes to central and can get there 24/7. There are parks all about to do exercise and cycle about the only disappointment is that the public transport is very dirty even at Highbury and Islington they have just done the referb to the station and it’s still very dirty and not what it should be for the money and time spent on it
Parking is ok if you have a resident permit, if you have friends come over then it’s a nightmare as parking is so expensive for them. The bin collection is once a week and the bin men are useless each week all the neighbours have to put the rubbish outside on the street or they won’t take all the rubbish from the bins they will usually leave half, I’m always complaining to the council about it but the problem never is resolved It’s a very safe area never had any problems, sure there are problems but tbh compared to other parts of London it’s a very safe place Traffic noise is ok It’s a mixed street from owners to renters to students to council tenants and it’s a great friendly street
N1 is between all ranges of shops from cheap selection of foods and house hold goods on hollow way road to little local upper end shops near angel that offer more organic ranges l, as for restaurants in Angel you can walk down the high stress and can choose a place to eat any food from any part of the world 🌍, or more towards Holloway there are a lot of halal places to eat
I don’t like the park across the street as I think it attracts gangs and robberies.
Lots of pets in the area and in the park which can be good for socialising and getting active
It’s very close to Highbury and Islington station which is continent to take you into central London. Also Caledonian and Holloway Road station for the underground isn’t far. The 153 bus is very close that goes around the backstreets along with all the other busses on the main road which are frequent, especially in rush hour, and there are nightbusses which are less frequent.
Many families live here, there’s close primary schools and secondary schools so lots of children in the area. Not much traffic but the roads tend to get busier in rush hour.
I live right next to a park, paradise park, which is nice however there’s a lot of trouble with phone snatching and robberies that take place there. The local shops are okay, not too far from Tesco express. There’s not many bars in Holloway, but it’s not too far from angel and kings cross. The i don’t really eat in many restaurants nearby apart from a few as they’re not the best in my opinion.
Public transport- best highlight and very accessible.
