The area is nice and friendly, as there are lot of children playing in the park without any issues or worry.

The area is nice and friendly, as there are lot of children playing in the park without any issues or worry. It is always kept clean. It is quite a old building howeve it suits the type of people living there as lot are families and they prefer the vintage look overall. It is very safe for children and pets as the building is always busy and people continously coming in and out. Never had any issues with safey of children or pets.

Transport

Transport links are very close as I mentioned before. Easy access to DLR, trains and bus. There are also public Santander cycles which can be rented out. There are also taxi service office near by. The buses ar very reliable and comes every 19 minutes. The DLr comes every 2 mins. The DLR last call is around 1am however there are night busses available. Otherwise it's easier to get on at cnaety wharf station and walk to home as underground trains tend to run longer at midnight. The rush hour times are not so bad either even at peak times there are spaces available on the DLR. Same applies to the busses. Transport services keep the equipments very and reliable for sure. It would have been little easier if Limehouse station was closer howeve the DLR takes you straight there so it's not so bad. There are 115, D3, 227, 135 that run from the bus stops. From DLR it would be towards Greenwich, Lewisham on one end and the other end will be Bank to get into City which is one direct DLR.

Community

The area is very clean without any issues. There are estate parking available for resident for a weekly charge of around £15 which is not too bad. There are bin taken Monday to Friday every morning and it's always done on time without any issues. There are no ani social behaviours, you will see young people socialising in the street but never gives any trouble and not causing any harm. The area is filled with people from all background now. So lot of families of all races along with students too. More families than couple but has a mix of all. Everyone is friendly and have never heard or experienced bad neighbourhood in the street. The cleaners are always there everyday in the morning sweeping floor and cleaning. Overall it is a nice and quiet area with nice surroundings.

Amenities

There are many local stores and resturarant nearby within couple of yards. The DLR is 1 minute walk and bus stop right next to DLR. Definitely easy to get around for sure. The DLR connect to the Limehouse train. The nearest supermarket is Asda but there are also Lidl which is roughly 10 minutes drive and opposite is Tesco Metro. There is doctors gp surgery about 2 minutes walk and pharmany along with post office about 5 minutes walk so most required places are very close by. Primacy school called Cyril Jackson school for children is just across the road so very close. Secondary school called St Paul's way is 10 mins drive or 20 mins walk. Tower hamlet college is 10 mins walk. So all essential amenities are very close by for sure. There is a pub which is 2 minutes walk and Canary wharf which has bars and more restuarants, roughly 10 minutes walk maximum. There are places to socialise just as jubilee place which is open grass area for people to sit down and socialise. Canary wharf station is very close and will be 10 minutes walk to get to. Most popular areas are the river side which is very calming with amazing views, just to take a nice walk along it leads you to Canary wharf itself and Poplar area not far from there, just across a bridge. Lot of people will cycle along the river island and enjoy the fresh air whilst many will sit on benches provided and enjoy company of friends whilst looking at the river view. There is also a private nursery couple of yards away for toddlers. There aren't any amenities which is missing.

Quiet, peaceful, a paradise for introverts & artists

It's a great area, very safe & very quiet! It would be great for introverts, and people who need to be close to their jobs (the rent might not be very worth it if you use the house for work from home). It could use some more young adults to make it more vivid!

Transport

It's easily accessible and convenient, as it's served by overground, DLR, tube, buses, and a cycling high-way. Pick and choose your preferred way!

Community

Security cameras are everywhere, we are at the waterfront, the neighbours are very quiet and mostly white-collars! Most buildings have their own garages.

Amenities

I love this area, mainly for the long walks around the marinas (Poplar Marina, Limehouse Basin, et.c.) and by the docklands! It's very safe, with lots of private camers and private security. It's special, as it's lit up around Christmas, it has special exhibitions, lots of shops, parks, pubs and bars! - Cycling: The area is all served by CS3 cycling highway! - Shopping: Massive undergroung shopping mall at Canary Wharf (Cabot Place, Canada Place, Jubilee Place), plus it's couple of Tube/ DLR stops away from Westfield shopping mall in Stratford! - Super market: Lidl at Westferry, Asda superstore at Isle of Dogs, M&S and Waitrose at the Canary Wharf underground malls!

Great area, wonderful community.

I like the parks and friendly neighbourhood, everyone is welcoming to newcomers. The area is safe for parents to raise their kids, and because of the parks around, pets can stay active.

Transport

There are multiple bus stops throughout the area, and train stations are also throughout the area.

Community

There are a few streets where i live, parking isn’t a problem. It is away from the main road.

Amenities

Alongside narrow street, there are a few places to eat, leading onto commercial road, where a range of fried chicken shops are based.
