who lives here?
No-one of note. No, not even her...
I live near it.
cos i like talking about it. its a nice place
I could have thrown the drum machine at you from the road.
I like the sound of Thedon Bois
Like if they wanted to say "Oh this place is a shithole, it's got less going on than _____"
And then they'd say:
its a good place. im there RIGHT NOW. it has noise gigs and buses and prams
in any of the above.
stoke on trent and stoke newington can be called stoke.
No idea where it is.
you've been there.
bardens is arguably in stoke newington
i thought it was dalston - i didn't do geography, sorry.
um what else is there apart from that high road that makes me feel unsafe?
bohemian family central1
which is full of yummie mummies and health-food shops. lots of restaurants and pubs/bars though.
with a small menagerie and an aviary which is a plus.
Also there's a festival which these people play at in an Abney park.
but it's right on the border of stoke newington.
I like it a lot, at least south of Church St.
It just about successfully straddles the posh and dull / fun and interesting boundary.
And completely fucks up the 'let me get to anywhere else in London in under an hour' category.
rough fucking area. clicheguevara, i assumed you were a suburban kid. but now i know why you're a big tory. lol @ you for living in stoke newington.
have you even been here?
its probably only rough if you live on one of the estates and you are a kid in a gang.
otherwise it is the poshest place i've ever lived.
unless you're a massive overprivileged wet with no sense of perspective.
but i guess it is on Stoke Newington Road. ooh!
If we are taking crossway/shacklewell lane as the boundary, which I think it technically is. Plus Dalston is E8 and Barden's is N16.
i just think of it as being opposite DK station.
but I think DK station is on Kingsland High St and then at that boundary I mentioned it turns into SN Road and Bardens is on that.
Stoke Newington is nice, but I find it slightly claustrophobic due to the amount of thirty something ex-trustafarian hippies. Plus it slightly annoys me when people call it Stokey and I'll glass anyone who calls it 'the village.' I'd rather live in London Fields.
it is like the name Kingsland ie just something put on A-Zs. Historically it is in SN because the boundary is at Crossway, between Hackney and Stoke Newington (now merged obv). In terms of administrative wards in 2008 then apparently it is in Dalston so I suppose that is the most useful way of gauging it. Fascinating stuff... Odd that they extended Dalston up into Stoke Newington Road.
London Fields surely has just has many trustafarians? Broadway Market is far worse (OK a bit worse) than anything in SN.
is for shoreditch trendies who feel they're too old to be hanging out in shoreditch anymore.
MOVED ON 6 out of 10
prince and londesborough are okay.
as is The Lion
Personally, I like the Rochester Castle too.
there's plenty of pubs and you can easily get a drink after hours if you wanted to.
by all means! I don't mind. I was just saying that I disagree on that particular point. It's not Camden or Shoreditch for night but it's hardly richmond park.
you know, your favourite pub
basically, we've blown that argument out of the water. Go us.
although he may no longer be a resident
I really didn't know John Power lived in SN. Glad I left
It's nice, but getting to work annoys me
SIT on the 73?
Although, my experiences on the 73 make me think that the entire world lives in Seven Sisters
just walk east and catch it on Brooke Road before it's gone along Church St.
i never do that. i always stand down by Tesco, frowning as full 73 by full 73 go by.
I moved there from Nottingham in Dec 06.
The week before i was at a gig talking to someone who lived there about what it is like. They said, in a slightly derogatory way, "it's full of yuppies". My reaction was "i think i can handle that" having prevously lived in Radford in Nottingham. I don't know anyone who has been mugged by an aspirational web-designer before.
It all started when William Booth (the Founder of the Salvation Army) who moved from Sneinton in Nottingham to Stoke Newington
More and more are moving by the day. We call it Stoke Nottingham because we're funny like that. We spins tales of Rock City, Bar Schnapps and Junktion 7 to the capital in exchange for overpriced pints of weak lager.
he gets about. Saw him on Wednesday. Do you know him from Notts or London Town?
I think Boothy got tired of the Rescue Rooms, Broadway, Malt Cross, Social quadrangle too.
Hmmm... "Everybody Knows Nima" - good idea for a tv show don't you think? I'll arrange a meeting with E4 and Nima so through a few ideas about.
Hello there! I'm George's housemate Matt. I really should put a profile picture up.
How's it going? N16 book club still going strong? Stoke Newington is the place to be, agreed?
I've doubled my figures. It is a small world but it's even smaller when you narrow it down to a postcode - see you round N16 sometime :)
your copy of after effects out of view.
had an absolute whale of a time, really fullfilling
MILF for daily mail readers
i live there, have done for a year and a half. i adore it, mainly for abney park cemetary and the spence bakery.
it once took me over an hour to get Clissold Park to Angel.
I don't care what anyone says, it has annoying transport links...especially when you're used to living near a tube station.
it's one of the bad features
though, the buses from the high st are usually good.
IT'S JUST THE HELLBUS 73 THAT RUINS IT
p.s. i know this is a pain really but I'm an almost tirelessly opitmistic person :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) lol
