  • Hackney is a dive. Over the 10 + years i have lived here, i have seen the place change for the worst. In the old days you could leave your dorrs unlocked or even during the day leave them open However this is not recomended these days as i once experianced 2 youths(no older than 14)running through my front garden and straight into my house where they helped them selves to my stero and televison. The youth of today has know respect for the elders! Darren 31yrs
