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!

What I like the most is the sense of community and the diversity of the area because it exposes my kids to different cultures and ways of life

As previously mentioned, the area is perfect for my children who can play in the local parks with their sports teams. What I like the most is the sense of community and the diversity of the area because it exposes my kids to different cultures and ways of life which they can learn from and take forward into their lives. I would say on the whole the area is trendy, with quirky shops and places to eat making it an enjoyable area to live in.

Transport

The transport services are very convenient and if the tube is not working there is always a bus route available. As I work locally, I am always checking my mobile apps to see the availability of transport and the apps are always right so I think because of this the convenience and availability of transport links are very reliable. The only issue are the crowds from 6-8 in the morning as it is very claustrophobic getting on transport sometimes, but I guess there is not a lot that can be done about this.

Community

I own a car and have to pay for a permit which is expensive as there is hardly any free parking. Even with a permit it can be difficult to find a space nearby my house. Bin collections are fine, the binmen are prompt and do their job efficiently. There is very little anti-social behaviour however there is a lot of traffic noise, especially in the mornings. My street has a mixture of renters and owners and we all get on okay with each other.

Amenities

The local shops in my area help me support my family because they provide local and international groceries which help me cook delicious meals for my family. The open spaces are perfect for my children as there are many local parks and sports teams/clubs which my children participate in. My favorite bars are the Wigmore and Market Place Bar because they have good vibe and very friendly staff who are always keen to help and have a good conversation
