I like that everything is cheap and that it feels really humble, safe and quiet

I like that everything is cheap and that it feels really humble, safe and quiet. The atmosphere is, as mentioned, that of a familiar area. Maybe a downside would be that making a house party would make me feel bad becuase I do know for a fact no neighbour has done it in the past 4 months, but that can't be called a problem. The area shoudl be suitable for children and pets, it has a lot of green areas with children's playgrounds and in fact you can see a lot of children when you go outside.

Transport

From my place, I have Mile End and Bow Road at less than 10 minute walking so I cant complain once again. Transport is always busy but it ks nothing special. Stations are generally cleaned up propperly. I don't ever use the bus lines but I am guessing it is pretty slow since Mile End Road is almost always very busy, but I also think that is something that is rather normal in London's buses.

Community

Tranquility. I have never had problems sleeping from a neighbour with loud music, or loud conversations in the streets, or cars, or motorcycles, or anything. It is very safe as far as I know. I work for Just Eat and sometimes I come very late at night around 12-1 am and I know in some other places in London this would represent a problem but in my case it does not. About parking availability, as far as I know parking spaces are assigned to the people living in my road, but I don't have a car so I cannot say more. In my street I'd say theres a lot of renters and families living, generally from Bangladesh (the signs of 'Not Ball Games' in my street are also written in Bengali).

Amenities

Because it is a rather humble area, everything is cheap. Vegetables are always of great quality and can be bought in the local market of Mile End. There is Langdon Park for exercising which is one of the three Steel Warriors outside gym in the entirety of London, so I cant complain about that. The whole neighbourhood is very quiet, mainly because there are a lot of families living around here. If you need a cinema or a shopping mall you can just head to Stratford which is relatively close. I do honestly thing no amenity is missing around here.

It’s the little things that make the area a cosy environment.

2 years ago, we’ve faced news of a murder and avid attack in our area. That was because there had been gang related violence. However I’d say that has improved SO much and I’d have to agree it’s a safe environment compared to before. Everyone is so lovely and new families are always moving in. Pets too. I’d say it has improved so much it’s a safe area for children to grow up. The area is lovely too with the wide open space and access to travelling.

Transport

Where I live, I’d say it’s easy for me to travel. I work in central London so it takes me around 5-10 minutes to walk to Bow Road station. I also have the 108 bus stop both side of my flat so I can travel to Westfield Stratford whenever. The DLR is right next to my house too, so travelling has never been an issue for me. I’d say the buses do arrive on time most of the time. I’ve never dealt with issues. The transport is fairy clean for me. But because I drive these days, I wouldn’t know. Overall I’m satisfied with my travelling. Everything is in front of me :)

Community

As someone who lives in a council flat, I’d say it is nice to park my car in a residential area. That’s because there’s a lot of space to. Even during night when it was packed, I’d at least find 1 or 2 spaces to park my car. I’ve never had to worry because I know there are spaces around my area. Bin collections are not so bad but due to covid it has been difficult for drivers to be allocated on time. However I’ve never had to complain about any bins in my area. In my area, there are council flat residents who have lived there for a really long time. Everyone’s very lovely but a lot of people do keep themselves to themselves. Again I’d think it’s because of covid and everyone’s just trying to stay safe. Myself included. However everyone is lovely and greet one another during occasions. It’s a nice feeling.

Amenities

I was born and raised in the area and to be honest, I find it one of the most comfortable easy going area to live by. The community is very lovely as it shares a diverse multicultural background. What connects us together are the schools, mosques, community centres and mini shops where parents and friends may bump into one another and greet each other. It’s the little things that make the area a cosy environment. The shop keepers already know what you want to order and the schools are very welcoming. You can hear people party on a Friday night as pubs are open till late. However due to covid, it’s been very difficult for most people. And this goes out to everyone living outside E2, E3, E14. But in my 20 years of living and growing up in the neighbourhood, I’ve never seen so many people get together and support one another during this pandemic. Everyones been following the rules and looking out for one another, helping families who have been struggling to support their own children with free school meals by handing out their own home made. It’s sad that we’ve had to experience it, but it’s amazing what this pandemic has brought out of us. It’s shown that there are people out there who actually care about one another and I’ve seen it all in my area. I’m honoured to meet families mentally and physically giving us support and this goes both ways. I’m proud of my area. And I am impressed with the construction sight these days. There are so many areas that have been refurbished and so many lovely buildings near by with little cafes and restaurants opening up. I’m very impressed with the vast changes that have been taking places over the past 2 years. My only wish is that I’d hope the area continues to stay clean, and by that I mean council flats where cleaners used to be allocated but I can understand that due to covid, everyone is going through a lockdown nationwide. Regardless I’m happy with the area I’ve grown up in and I’m proud of everyone working together to make sure we all stay safe. And I do hope we all make it through these unprecedented times.

We are a community and we get along together

It's an area I grew up in. Neighbours are friendly we participate together in charities and looknwfter each other

Transport

There aren't any night buses we can use in Bromley by Bow, same applies to our station. This makes it hard for those who work night shifts. For elderly people it is hard for them to walk a long distance to go one the bus they want.

Community

We are a community and we get along together. Most of us grew up together. I feel safe here.

Amenities

In terms of shops it is okay in some parts of E3. However in Bromley by Bow we only have a very few jobs. Also the area is congested, hard to find parking. There isn't much open space.
