Favourite Building
  • Old and New - The Islington Central Library is a nice change to the general brown mess I call home - then again, so is the new graduate center at LondonMet Uni designed by Daniel Leibeskind - dubbed "The Titanic" by locals because of how it looks.
  • Bemerton estate well why wouldnt it be
  • The new angel cum tube station - beta builda lives!
  • St Pauls Church on St Pauls Road, Islington. Fab old tumbledown gothic-type church which now does workshops in metal and stained glass and stuff, and has a great organic caff.
  • The Union Chapel in Compton Terrace just off Upper Street is quite striking.
  • Too many to mention: The Green, The Kings Head, The houses.
  • Crafts Council, Pentonville Road, also has nice uncrowded cafe with gaggia machine coffee and quiche type grub
