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.

Old Street - Central, Trendy, Friendy anc Busy

The area apppers safe to me. Because it is so busy Monday - Friday their are always people about and I have never felt unsafe here. Because their is not a lot of residential properties here the local community are very strong and look out for each other. Pets would be happy here the are many green areas for dogs to run around in.

Transport

moved here 7 years ago and love the hustle and bustle of the area. I am walking distance to underground , overground and mainline stations . Buses are very frequent taking you to south London or further North. When bussing it I never wait longer than a minute for a bus to arrive.

Community

I am lucky to have off street parking for when friends drive to visit me. This is not a hugely residential area. Being in some 1 it’s Uber busy Monday - Friday but the weekends during the day is so quiet you get to see the area in a much different light. Once indoors you would not even know you where living in such a busy area.

Amenities

There are so many great places to eat and drink here. I love the Angel Pub it’s a traditional friendly place and it’s great for some cheap filling lunch. HOXTON Square and Finsbury Square are a shirt walk from me and are lively places to meet friend and have a drink in the summer .

It’s being regenerated but I think COVID will be very bad for prosperity locally

Transport

Tube services at old street, Barbican and Farringdon. Farringdon is excellent for tube, train and thameslink giving great access from London Bridge, Kings Cross and beyond

Community

Lots of businesses in the area. A mix of owners and rented. Some social housing too. It’s an area that is being gentrified.

Amenities

Loads of pubs, bars and restaurants for both lunches and evening. Italian delis in the area are good and the slaughtered lamb pub is excellent for outside drinking
