London, EC1V 2AD

High quality living area

Like the fact the overall residents here are polite, and feel educated and are all willing to follow when new guidance are released by the government, therefore feeling relatively safe living in the area in general. The area is quite convenient in terms of buying essentials and traffic, and student and child friendly, quite pet friendly considering there’s a park nearby and a lot of residents actually have pets with them. Would be great if there’s a cafe nearby, or potentially have a GP clinic as well.

Transport

Quite close to both Angel and Old St tube stations, and walking distance to King’s Cross St Pancras. Very convenient for long-distance and international travel (EuroStars and trains to Gatwick Airport, or tube to Heathrow). Have access to buses as well (especially 205 which crosses East to West London). However, not as useful during the pandemic with concerns during the rush ours and public transport in general, ended up buying a bike for myself.

Community

Quite a space space to walk at night, with bright streetlights and large roads. Have bins every few meters which is convenient, and the fact that bins contain both general waste and recycling is a plus. City University and a nursery school nearby, therefore quite a lot of student accommodations and safe-guarding features such as CCTV around. Mostly renters in the building, especially those working in the City or Liverpool St. The average living age is tilted towards the younger generation, from university students to mid-40s working in the City.

Amenities

Within walkable distance to Angel (With all the restaurants, shops and supermarkets), and Old St station. Quite convenient, but nothing exactly nearby apart from McDonald’s and Co-op. May be convenient for students studying at City University. No GP clinics nearby is something that could be improved.

Bath St, EC1V 9JQ

A mini City in itself, bursting with cocktails bars with funky names

I believe that the area is most appealing to the youth and those with disposable income to spare in order to enjoy all of the trendy bars and hipster cafes. The area is becoming increasingly stylish as it experiences a growing demand for luxury apartments for those young professionals. The area is safe for those who are young and vigilant, but I wouldn't declare it as safe for those elderly and vulnerable as pick-pocketing is common.

Transport

There are numerous easy and cheap routes into the main City (eg London Bridge, Waterloo) or toward the outer areas of London (eg Wood Green, Walthamstow). Buses are every 5-10 minutes and the Old St tube line offers Northern line services as well as the Northern City line. The cycle routes are chaotic as there are ongoing works by the Old St roundabout. Traffic is also an issue at present due to these development works.

Community

The street I live on is directly connected to main Old St which is very traffic dense during rush hour as it is a main route to the City. Therefore, traffic noise and sirens are often in earshot. Many small families and elderly people live in my street, most having lived in the area for many years. The local primary school offer easy access for families. Bin collections are reliable and on schedule 99% of the time. Litter and fly-tipping is occasionally an issue.

Amenities

I've lived in the area for many years and have seen how the breed of shops has changed. Most noticeably, there has been a surge of big names dominating the main streets – Wagamama and M&S to name a couple of recent new outlets – to appeal to the more affluent professionals attracted to the area as it undergoes development. Depending on your budget or occasion, there are a range of bars and restaurants to choose from that cater to all needs. Toward Shoreditch is where you'll find the more popular upmarket cocktails bars like Golden Bee and Old St Records, their exteriors heaving in the Summer evenings. Scattered throughout the area are plenty of cafes and coffee shops with friendly owners who love the vibe of the area. I'd like to see more spaces that pay homage to the area's rich history, like a statue of commemoration to historic figures linked to the area.

Area is fantastic for a walking commute for those working in the city

The best part about this area is the convenience to other places. It is also relatively safe if you don't stay out too late.

Transport

Area is fantastic for a walking commute for those working in the city. Bus routes are good and reliable. Tube stations are generally around 10 mins away but I personally don't like the tube.

Community

It's a mix on this street - families, elderly coupled and young professionals. As the university is close there are students out and about. There are often youths cycling around but I'm not aware of any major problems.

Amenities

Good restaurants and close to Exmouth market. It's also very close to Angel's upper street. There arent an abundance of open spaces but there are some.
