  • A big brand new Shopping Galleria is having its December 2001 finishing touches pit to it right next to Finchley Road and Frognal Tube.Has various levels.Similiar to The Bayswater one. It features a huge anchor reataurant Smolenskys.Was empty though.
  • There is hardly any crime. I've only been robbed here once, and have only had one bike stolen. It was such a pretty bike :(. If you have the capacity to ignore the suburban working class ITV families, it's not a bad place to be brought up.
  • The Archer, gospel truth of East Finchley
  • You can pick up the sounds of the Time FM on 104.6FM most of the time. Shouts actually go out to the invisble "Ballards Lane crew". Phat tunes though.

  • Various people, cake shops and 2nd hand shops
