Overall, not the worst area to live in.
The area is certainly i need of major investment and the infrastucture is quite old and poor. Many of the buildings are old council flats and are quite over-crowded. As a result, the area does have quite a few families that live in homes that are too small and are of poor quality. Furthermore, the area is constantly over-populated and leads to issues such as dirty streets, packed markets, rubbish bins over-flowing and constant traffic.
If I had to choose what I love most about the area it would be how fantastic the transport links are and just how easy it is to get from one area to another. There many stations within reasonable walking distance such as Edgware road stations (B and C), Baker street station, Paddinton station, St John's wood andany more. Also, there are so many bus stops you can honestly lose count, the number of different bus routes makes it by far the most popular method. Laslty, there are many bike stations that offer London bikes for short and long rentals, parking spots for cars and even electric bikes on the streets. On the downside, the traffic can be awful during the rush-hour so that is qorth considering, pkus the area can get incredibly busy and crowded. Overall, 5 stars.
Overall, the area is very lively and convenient for food and everday items. There are also many cafes and restaurants nearby that offer Alcohol and Shisha. In addition, you'll find many gyms and parks that are within walking diatance or a short drive away.
There are a wide range of restaurants to choose from, this includes well known franchises such as Domino's, Pizza Hut and KFC. However, there are also many small privately owned restarurants that offer a wide range of Middle Eastern food such as Lebanese, Kurdish, Turkish and Iraqi. Bars are not very common, however there are a few pubs such as the famous Crockers Folly. The amount of local shops and supermarkets is very impressive, these include mini-supermarkets that offer a range of fruits, vegtables and everday times, as well as well known stores such as Tesco and Sainsbury's.

I love the area I'm in as it's walking distance to some lovely little parts of London eg Little Venice, Maida Vale, St Johns Wood, Marylebone, Paddington & Edgware Road. I suppose I would class the area on my doorstep as multicultural with a strong sense of Arabic influence with Edgware Road being affectionately known as the "mini Beirut" of London with all its shisha bars & Cafes. It has a mix of international and trendyness about it. The area ia suitable for kids and pets with lots of green spaces in the area eg Hyde Park, Reagents Park and there are schools and sports clubs in the area too.
The area is extremely well connected with 24 hour buses covering most routes and I am 10 to 15 minutes walk away from Edgware Road, Marylebone & St Johns Wood underground stations. There are plenty of cycle lanes on the roads in the area and I am a 15 minutes walk away from Paddington station which has plenty of overground services on offer aswell as easy access to Heathrow airport. The traffic can be bad at times during rush hour but the congestion charge has definitely made improvements in this regard. The stations and buses and tubes are all well maintained and kept clean and to s high standard. The only issue I would have is there is alot of pollution in the area as a result of the all the cars and buses travel through aswell as noise pollution created mainly by being so closely situated to St Mary's Hospital with lots of sirens passing at all times of the day.
The good aspects of living on my street are the regular street cleaners keeping the place nice and tidy. The bin and refuse collection service is on point. There is also a regular presence of police in the area which keeps anti social behaviour down. The area does suffer from noise pollution with regular sirens passing at all times of the day with St Mary's Hospital close by. My street is occupied mainly by familes and couples, more renting than owners. There is afew students in the area aswell.
The area is really well connected with 24 hour buses covering most routes and I have Edgware Road, Marylebone and St Johns Wood underground stations all within walking distance and very close by. The highlights of my area include: - walking to the bars, restaurants and shisha lounges on Edgware Road aswell as visiting the shops/markets/restaurants/bars of Marylebone High street which is 15 minutes walk from me. - easy access into the West End (10 mins by tube to Piccadilly Circus) - Madame Tussauds and the Sherlock Holmes Museum are just 10 mins walk away. - you have one of the the world's best parks in Hyde Park close by, and Regents Park, is on my doorstep with its lake, boats, rose garden, cafes, tennis courts and outdoor theatre (in season). - the shops/restaurants of St Johns Wood and Maida Vale are close by aswell as beautiful Little Venice with its canal bars, cafes and boats tours - world famous Lords Cricket ground is just around the corner and perfect for me being a cricket lover! - London's best and most famous gourmet fish and chip shop/restaurant (The Seashell) is in the area also. - it's a 15 minute walk away to Marble Arch and Oxford Street with its plethora of shops including Selfridges, John Lewis, House Of Fraser and many other flagship stores. - just 2 minutes around the corner is Church Street Market and there is some of the best antiques shopping in London in the famous Alfie's antiques market with rooftop cafe. - there are 3 gyms close by aswell as a yoga centre (Indaba). The only 3 criticisms I have of my area are - a lack of a proper police station although there is a police drop in counter on Church Street. - homelessness is rife in the area and particlarly bad and noticeable at night. - also there is alot of noise pollution and regular sirens going by at all times of the day and night with St Marys hospital close by. All in all, I'm really happy with the facilities and amenities available in my area, and love living there with no desire to leave anytime in the future.
The rent varies from £1000-1500 which isn’t too bad
Apart from the wonderful shops, restaurants and historic buildings in Marylebone, we always enjoy visiting Edgware Road on the very edge (western boundary) of this beautiful district. The Edgware Road corridor is one of the most vibrant places in London. Open 7 days and seemingly all night as well! This is a favourite gathering place for many Middle Eastern families -- not super-rich but definitely affluent. The number of Halal restaurants is beyond comparison. The excellent Waitrose and Tesco have a non-stop stream of customers. And it is a very safe area, thanks mainly to the civil behaviour of the patrons at the Middle Eastern shops and eateries
The whole of Edgware Road, top to bottom, will be safe walking in the evenings with kids, but keep them well away from the road if they are small, as the traffic is always heavy and fast.
There is 3 nearly schools to me which is great . The rent varies from £1000-1500 which isn’t too bad
The whole of Edgware the traffic is always heavy and fast. Restaurant owners are mainly arab with most shops selling shisha and arab food
Lovely tight-nit community
