Small central street with few hidden gems

I feel quite safe here although at night it tents to get a bit rough with all the homeless people passing by or just drunk people. I would like to see the area gain more coffee shops, parking and recycling bin access. Whenever I feel like going to the market, I head few minutes to kings cross or coal drop yard. I like my area for it’s accessibility and connection. I dislike it for being quite dirty.

Transport

I have about 4 mins walk to Kinga cross or Euston which is really convenient for me. There’s a great bus link but the rush hour makes the area a bit busy but I don’t mind that at all. There’s regular buses and now there are bike lanes that keep appearing which is lovely to see

Community

I live on Chalton street. There are not great parking availability and the annoying thing is that they announce “works” on the street which never happen so that means we have to move the car somewhere else. My car was tolled because of that! It’s very annoying. The street is quiet, although during peak hours the taxis like to drive through this street and that creates traffic as the road is narrow because of the parked cars. There aren’t many bins! No recycling bins in my building which is a huge minus. People tend to leave the rubbish outside and the foxes get to them, ripping up the bags. It is not very clean street. I would like to see more recycling bins

Amenities

I live in Somers Town. There aren’t many local coffee shops which is what is missing in this lovely area. I like that we have Somers town coffee house which is a pub! It’s a beautiful, little pub with amazing food! It seems to be popular place it’s always packed with people who come to drink after work or at the weekend. We have a cheese shop on Chalton street called Cheeselo. They have a great variety of French to British cheese. She also offers cheese tasting and raclette night which I highly recommend. We have few corner shops but we lack coffee shops or a bakery. I would to see this area to transform a bit. I can’t complain because where I live is really central so I have couple of minutes walk to the amazing Coal drop yard or Camden Town. Coal drop yard is the best thing that happen to Kings cross. It’s totally transformed the area! Lots of shops, coffee places and restaurants! This is what this area needed!

I am very happy to live in such a great place, and it is very affordable

It has a very safe feeling but because people are very friendly and most of them are minding their own business. You would come to celebrate a birthday party, or a night out with the girls or with the boys, it is suitable for children and pets. Most people adore pets and they are very approachable to them. I am very happy to live in such a great place, and it is very affordable.

Transport

This has very good transport links being very central busses are running all day long and some night time, you won't be missing a bus as they coming every 5 minutes or so. Overground has good connections to the other lines that goes from central to other areas in London. It is a very clean area, with regular bin men doing their job properly also some are friendly too. The noise would be the only issue here but considering how busy it gets no one really notice it once they get to live in this area. Highly recommend!

Community

It has few parking spaces but the Mayor of London is working in building some more spaces which is great for the neighbourhood. The traffic it's constant from morning to noon but night time can get quiet and peaceful. It is cheap to rent in this area than to own a house but that is because people have been considering to find a new building to live in rather than a more older house. There is foreign students who rent, elderly couples and some young families. It is a great community we all support each other, highly recommend whoever consider moving in this area won't have any regret in the future!

Amenities

We have a beautiful area here , with lots of amenities from local shops to restaurants, and everything you might think off. It has also a University within walking distance from the tube station. The very famous called MEATliquor it is a restaurant where you can chose to dine-in or takeaway who has a very nice retro atmosphere. amazing friendly personal with a great hardworking manager which I personally know. There is not much missing in this area apart from a Gym but that is not far from where we live either.

Extremely convenient, very well connected to the rest of London.

Would like more pets

Transport

Extremely convenient, very well connected to the rest of London. I just wish the bus lines were a bit easier to reach sometimes as it can be a long walk.

Community

It’s fairly quiet although other residents can be quite loud and there’s a lot of noise at night. Someone is constantly playing the piano too which is annoying

Amenities

There isn’t much shopping for groceries nearby except for the Sainsbury’s local. Even a larger supermarket is far away. Lots of great restaurants though and the museums are a bonus. Excellent connections.

What I like most in my place is because it’s close to my work and I do enjoy walking outside.
