About the Area
Stoke Newington is a vibrant area - one of London's nicest, most interesting neighborhoods. It has the feel of a village (albeit a very 'hip' one) where the character is carefully protected from the growing samey-ness of most British high streets. All of the shops (with one exception - 'Whole Foods) are independently run by people who care about what they do.
There's a fantastic green grocers, where you can get virtually anything you can imagine. There's a top notch baker and butcher along with newsagents, coffee shops, restaurants and pretty much anything else you're likely to want or need.
You'll be right beside Clissold Park (a lovely public park, with duck ponds, deer and an aviary) and close to Dalston, Shoreditch, Islington and Liverpool Street.
PS: Daniel Defoe (Robinson Crusoe) and Edgar Allen Poe both went to school on Stoke Newington Church Street, although not at the same time...
