Hookup Spots
  • Outside Seven Sisters tube, listening to music from Colombian caffs nearby.
  • There are no hook up spots anymore in Tottenham or as we call it now Totty-Town or T-Town because crime is so high here the areas where i think the person is talking about are kind of under control by a gang which I'll not name.A lot has changed since 1953 more of us foreigners came in to fix it up after the war and it is now the second most jamaican place in the U.K after Brixton in South London. I'm not being bad I'm just warning you, if you're white I advise you not to hang around in a small group for too long especially if you're not known to the area. In 1985 a riot occurred in Tottenham which was sparked by an elderely woman being kiled in her flat while the police were chasing her son through the flat in an estate called broadwater Farm. The "Farm is a good estate now but it looks to turn rough again as there were 2 boys killed in a drive by from a rival gang, and some man from that gang was taken out to country and tortured and left to die, there was a socumentary made about crime in Tottenham where a gang stole a car and were backing it up an banged some mans car with it and he asked them who's going to pay for it and they were imtimadating him and 1 of the youths man a gun sign with his hand and they phoned 1 of their boys and he came out of his car and shot him in the back of the head with a shotgun, the man didn't die but they're now in hiding and he's brain damaged, he was shot in front of his kids and he was a strong christian. This year gun crime has risen by 50% and murders. It is not as dangerous as U.S.A as guns can only come in by smuggling as they're illegal but your 10 times more likely to be mugged in London than New york.

  • Bruce Castle park and surrounding area is truly beautiful - lovely place to hang out with a pub (Antwerp Arms) right beside it.
  • Park Lane
  • I think the favoured hook up place for the people of Tottenham, is probably the police station. Because most of Tottenhams residents have been in the cells at one stage or another.
  • Outside McDonalds is a great place for ignorant little gits to hang out- don't ask me why!!Bruce Castle park and any flats going with abit of shelter are always favourites. People say Tottenham is really bad for crime ect but its not just don't go round at nite, past a group of people with all your gold showing- simple.
  • Woodgreen high street moped gangs hang there before the go to mug people or go to the litten tree.
  • No where...everybody meets in Wood Green.
  • I was born in Tottenham and spent the war years there untill coming to canada in 1995 If there is anyone that knows me I would like to hear from them Also to hear what has happened now to the place Enid
  • I have absolutely no idea. I used to live there up until 1958.
