The entirely missable and worth mentioning because of it

You can tell us more about Stoke Newington.

The Worst Things
  • haven't even y'know been here, just got bad vibes ya feel
  • Can be a bit snobby and conservative, oh and east endish too ( very small and confined areas but very much so within them). A good amount of snobby and rude little shits that need a good kicking.
  • Too many trendy, over-proced, pointless shops selling artsy, crafty, ttrendy rubbish...and they're always empty!!! We need more real businesses that sell proper stuff!!!
  • the two down an outers by the cash machines on the main drag by church st jct one either side of the road.harassing you for cash. all the f ing speed bumps.
  • Full of complete nutters and it is run by Hackney Council, Need I say more ? FILTH everywhere. Oh, and the Library, what a complete waste of funds and time. OK if you belong to only one type of Ethnic minority (even though there are several different minorities in this area) and are gay but otherwise it's useless.
  • Houses are now so expensive that none of my friends can afford to live here.
  • Poor schools.
