Polluted and boring but with great potential.

The place is in serious need of more greenery. The pollution is bad and there aren’t proper green spaces around. Finchley Road doesn’t have a single tree, it is the ugliest place in the area. I avoid going to the shops there because it is just a depressing sight. There’s a university dedicated to music in Kilburn, not far, and I find it sad that there aren’t more spaces for live music or socialise. My area is very close to central, has great transport links and it has a shopping centre and spaces that could potentially become more interesting. The lack of option for sustainable living is overwhelming, the area could do with something like that, although I fear those things tend to be overpriced. The farmer’s market by the library is a joke, there’s three stalls and two have already made food. The library can’t be used to study because teenagers can’t keep it down and the staff doesn’t give a crap about it. It’s a real shame because the place is huge and has tons of interesting stuff. The gym by Swiss Cottage is okay, but overcrowded so it’s impossible to book anything. The Virgin one in the O2 centre is too expensive.

Transport

Public transport in the area is very good: lots of trains options and buses. There are also good cycling routes. Finchley Road is Sergio though, there’s always traffic, cycling there is disgusting and dangerous.

Community

The best thing about it is the one stop to Euston train as well as the option of the jubilee line. You can be in central in 15min. However, it generally feels safe and I don’t mind walking home alone at night. The Tesco opened until 11 everyday is also very convenient. I’m not sure the kind of people who live in my street but I have seen a bit of everything: families, young people, teens... people in my building don’t seem too social and those who are, have young children. I do think depending on the side of the road you get different things since one side of the road has nice houses and the ones in the other side look like they’re falling apart.

Amenities

There are several shops and restaurants in Finchley Road. They’re not amazing though, three or four pharmacies (do we need that many?) and all the boring coffee places like costa, Starbucks and Pret. The restaurants and bars are not that good either: an expensive kebab place, a yo sushi were they ignore you, and more and more chains. There seems to be a lot but nothin that’s interesting. There is a nice café and a cool Japanese shop by Finchley Road station, Oliver Bonas, Waterstones and Paperchase in the O2 centre, good for buying presents. Saynsburys in the O2 is pretty good, as well as Waitrose. Everything else is just awe full. Towards Kilburn it gets worse although TK Max makes it a bit more interesting. Pubs are nowhere to be found except for the Swiss Cottage (which doesn’t have the best beer, but is better than nothing) and the wine bar by South Hampstead, which is probably one of the best places around. You’ve got to walk far (towards Saint John’s Wood) to see something a little more interesting. There aren’t many green spaces, and Finchley Road is probably one of the greyest places in North London. It’s a road made for cars which everyone who lives around hates.

I think the only bad thing about my street is that some of the houses are quite old and need updating.

if anyone wants to find somewhere where it’s quiet but loud at the same time and wants to live in a nice residential area in London, I definitely recommend my area area

Transport

in my area you have access to 3 overground stations, three underground stations, one train link service and an array of different bus routes that go far and wide. All of these transport links are well kept up and are easy to navigate. There’s even a coach that takes you to Luton and Stanstead. The area definitely allows for cyclists but unfortunately I don’t think has dedicated cycle lanes. Rush-hour is definitely chockablock but it does clear up pretty quick. There are a few night buses, as many as you would expect. Overall you can get anywhere you want in London from my area within 40 minutes.

Community

I have never experienced any antisocial behaviour on my street, Noise. Just occasional honking. most people rent I believe and a lot of families live there. Bin collections are regular and there isn’t much parking as it’s dedicated to the people who live there.

Amenities

my local area is amazing, it has so much greenery and Quick access to central London within 30 minutes. There are many charity shops, supermarkets, restaurants and pharmacies for your every day needs. There are even a few churches and community centres so it feels like a close-knit community. i’ve lived there for nearly 20 years aka since I was born and I feel so safe there. There is a mixture of people from all walks of life which I appreciate as it makes Finchley Road more accessible to regular people instead of for example Hampstead High Street having really fancy shops. The other High Street that is local is West Hamstead which is also very beautiful and has great access to everywhere. The residential area is beautiful, the pubs are all still running, and all shops and restaurants are kept up very well. My local area is definitely somewhere you would want to live.

Love the area.

Love the area. Plenty of pubs quizz often, ideally situated to go center. Neighbours are very nice and helpful. I feel safe and happy in this area!

Transport

Nice connection with West Hampstead station and undergound. South Hampstead and Kilburn 15 Min waliking. Several day and nice buses. I often use Uber and the come very quick

Community

Mostly families (lots of French people), school nearby, mostly owners and the area is quite fancy but in the good way.

Amenities

West Hampstead near, lots of shops and restaurants. Plenty of choice in the area, south Hampstead near as well.
