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!

It doesn’t get any better!

I believe the area is really safe (as safe as London can be!) There is not much I would change: transportation links are amazing and there is a huge selection of restaurants, pubs and bars to choose from for recreational activity.

Transport

This area is absolutely perfect when it comes to public transports: different bus lines and stops close to you anywhere in the area, which will get you to East, West and South easily. King’s Cross St Pancras station is also there to easily reach the furthest London destinations. No flaws!

Community

I love my street: it’s the smallest crescent in Europe and it gives that cozy feeling of intimacy that you wouldn’t expect to get from such a central location! Plenty of parking spots available and well planned and punctual bin collection services.

Amenities

N1 is such a beautiful area. It’s really close to King’s Cross St Pancras Station, which means you’re close (or at least very well connected) to most places in London, and two hours away from Paris, door to door! There isn’t anything I would change: there are plenty of restaurants and diverse cuisines, shops, beauty salons, and most places are very affordable considering you’re basically in Central London. If you’re not feeling like getting on public transports (very possible scenario, considering the times) it’s only a 25 minute walk to Tottenham Court Road. I wouldn’t want to live anywhere else in London.
