Its a bit old fashioned with the red green and blue buildings but does feel like home

Its a bit old fashioned with the red green and blue buildings but does feel like home. I think more shops should open below the buildings rather than parking garages. More money for the community. People would shop local. Giving more jobs with the community. May even help with the young troubles. Plus im pretty sure who ever owns those garages would get more money as a shop

Transport

Theres bus stops all around us all minutes walk away. Going in all directions. Got marlybone station 10 minuted away and edgware road station 15 minutes away. Have the santander cycle service downstairs. We do get alot of traffic on marlybone road and edgware road. Cycling and bus is easier

Community

There are loads of parking space do tend to get hard to find a spot after 6. Bins dont smell like they used to which is great. There are alot of young boys and girls who never have given me any problems but do hassle others making it look like a bad area for new people The people i know off are mostly coucil housing and they live as a family. Very less home owners but there are a few that i know of.

Amenities

I love the area. Nice large confectionery store literally below my building and next door to them is a fairly big laundrette i use them only for drying right opposite me is an open outdoor gym equipment free for all to use, which saves me money on the gym. Around the corner we have a decent quiet park which is nicely laid out and bit further a very large playground sectioned off for smaller children and has a large football and basketball pitch plus with a nice view, which is a stone throw away, of the canal. From my house im a few 100 yards away from church street comprised of many variety of shops and stalls and libary there too. Got regents park 10 minute walk away. Local stations are marlybone which has underground and over ground. Edgware road is just a 10 minute walk down. Everything is local .

Quite atmosphere. Pubs are trendy but overall the area is oldish. Suitable for children and pets. Very safe.

Transport

Tube is very close to my living area. There are 2 different tube station which connect very well the area to the key places in west and east london as well as other parts of the city. There is also good connection to airports.

Community

The good aspects include: residential and quite place but still, very close to shops, restaurants ans central London. Well connected through tube and buses. Close to hospitals. It seems that my area is mostly populaed by families and couples. Probably, most of them are owners.

Amenities

Despite my area is very quite, there are several amenities for all age ranges. Starting from all sort of shops to pubs and restaurants. Pubs for example are the most popular amenities in the area. One of them is particularly nice and always busy. The legend says that it is infested by gosths. In general, quality of pubs is very high and they offer good quality food for both vegetarians and not. I think this is the reason why they are so popular. Another interesting feature of my area are multiethnic restaurants like indian, thai, egyptian, other. Also, several very very good italian restaurants. Local shops offer good quality food but very expesive, according to my standards and opinion. However, they also offer a wide variety of food and products. In terms of missing amenities, I would say gyms. Or more precisely, large gym chains.

the area is incredibly old and needs investment, but not in the form of corporate offices!

I like the fact that it essentially never sleeps, with restaurants and cafes opening till late and people walking on the streets till 2 am! I would say its a pretty safe area, with rare occasions of violence and crime. However, the area is incredibly old and needs investment, but not in the form of corporate offices!

Transport

Transport links are pretty good, there are many buses running on a regular basis and 2 train stations within Edgware road alone. However, this does mean that traffic is very bad most of the time. Parking is an absolute rip off, and most of the area falls within the congestion charge zone anyway, so its never really worth taking your car. Rush hour is a nightmare and is incredibly busy, the constant road works also don't help.

Community

Parking availability isn't too bad, however as I mentioned before its very expensive and spots are difficult to find. The area is always busy and loud with noises of cars and horns honking.

Amenities

The area used to be very popular, there were so many tourists that would come to visit every year. This led to the many restaurants, cinemas, cafes and supermarkets benefiting significantly. However, now its just corporate all over, so many of these popular places are closing down and they're opening offices and flats in place of them. Edgware road used to benefit so many people and was loved by millions, now its slowly being destroyed. If you take a look at Edgware road now it looks depressing, dirty, quiet and boring.
