The heart of haringey

I don’t like that it is being gentrified, the poor are slowly being pushed out. For example I have lived her my whole life but would be unable to afford a place here because house prices have risen. As a result it means I would have to move further away if I decided to buy a place near my parental home. I also feel that it is sometimes unsafe at night especially by the station and would like there to be more surveillance.

Transport

Very good transport links, a bus garage, one tube line and one British rail line within 5 minute walk of eachother. There are no problems with travel.

Community

Parking availability is good as we have resident permits. There is minimal traffic noise and also asbos. There are mainly renters renting rooms rather than houses on the street so I don’t really know who my neighbours are. Sometimes that can mean the street lacks a sense of community. As house prices are too high, it means that most people are unable to buy in the area meaning there are a lot more converted flats.

Amenities

There are many shops available in my local area as well as good transport links. We have an underground station on the Piccadilly line as well as British rail (Hornsey). I would split my area into 4 sections. We have Green Lanes which have great green grocers, a pharmacy which opens until midnight and local Turkish restaurants. There are also a couple of banks and post offices. In terms of cafes, there are a few where you can get a decent breakfast (avocado and toast kind of place not greasy spoon). There is also a small retail park with Homebase, Poundland and Sainsbury’s. If you travel further down the same road you will reach Wood Green. Here there are some high street shops, some more banks, health food stores as well as the shopping centre. Here you can also find a good food hall where you have a good fishmonger, butcher, specialist Asian shop and green grovcers. There are also a fair amount of clothes shops including primark and new look. In terms of entertainment you also have a cinema and Wetherspoon not far away. Turnpike Lane is also not far away and here you can get hold of a range of amenities such as ethnic food shopping, butchers, restaurants such as Indian, Turkish and Mauritian cuisine as cheaper fast food (dirty chicken and chips) which always hits the spot. On the other side of my road, you are not far away from crouch end which is a short walk. Completely different to the other places that I have mentioned, very calm and middle class, lots of organic shops and posh coffee shops. Great for brunch. Also a nice walk with boutique shops. You can also walk towards Alexandra Palace which is a great walk and place to run, walk or take the children out. I think living in this area, we have lots of great clothes shops, supermarkets, library, community centres, fast food places and green grocers. I feel the thing which is lacking in the area is safety. There are occasions where I feel unsafe and see some things in the local park which I wish was not there. I think there should be less betting shops. I think there should be more policing on the streets. I would like to see more being done for the community including the elderly and young people. It would be better if there was more of a sense of community. I feel that half of Wood Green high street is not as lively as the other half and a lot of shops have closed down (M and S, peacocks, Dorothy Perkins, Maplin) and these have been replaced with cheap brick a brack stores.

Finsbury park, Londons hidden gem

One thing I believe that needs to be introduced and taken very seriously is the safety in Finsbury Park, I believe there should be better security and timed lighting so that people walking through the park at night will feel safer as its a shortcut often used by everyone.

Transport

Finsbury park has the most accessible public transport in London, connected by Victoria, Piccadilly, overground and national rail you'll never find it an inconvenience to travel.

Community

The streets here are safe and quite, the area has such a low crime rate and the streets are beautifully layed out. Its almost like stepping into a true London area

Amenities

Neighbouring green lanes the area has amazing eateries and quaint cafés that serve beautiful artisan coffee's. With Finsbury park on your door step your never too far from a nice stroll in the park, as well as harbouring great sports amenities, the park offers basketball, netball and tennis courts open for the public use. Finsbury park is one of the most accessible locations in London with over 5 train lines connecting you to different parts of the city, you'll never find it an inconvenience to travel places. Well equipped with shopping centres your almost spoilt for where you can do you shopping, with lidl and sainsburys only a stone throw from each other the options are great.

Great potential not enough policing

The mall and the underground service I like the think I hate are the disgusting people on the street from thieves and drug dealers

Transport

Very good Turnpike Lane good to the city bus are ridiculously slow to be so close to the city no cycling lanes and traffic is dangerous must be 20miles all over London

Community

Good parking not very busy bin collection decent average streets are not clean though anti social behaviour is thru the roof disgusting more police should be involved

Amenities

Well 25 minutes from Alexandria palace one of the most beautiful view of London Turnpike Lane and Wood Green high street area need way more policing. Turnpike Lane park need more policing and all surrounding area east from N8 things gets better towards seven sisters and south towards Finsbury Park. No cycling Lane towards Manor House very dangerous traffic if you are a cyclists and commute from N8 missing cycling routes too much traffic no 20miles not enough policing Wood Green Turnpike Lane has great potential because you have everything but it’s as I said left rotten
