Tell me about the local tribe
They’re a multicultural bunch – Turkish, West Indian and Polish communities live cheek-by-jowl with young professionals and families priced out of nearby Muswell Hill and Crouch End.
What’s new in the area?
Are there any community spaces?
Hotel-meets-restaurant-meets-community-space Green Rooms is a social enterprise bringing a bit of Berlin to N22. It also has a kitchen residency – chicken karaage expert Oita is the current occupant.
Where can I grab a morning latte?
Board-game café Cakes & Ladders can be found on an old double-decker bus parked among the indie boutiques of quirky pop-up space Blue House Yard. If the idea of over-caffeinated Risk players scares you, try Bean + Brew by the station for a coffee and a killer almond croissant.
What’s the nearest green space?
Lordship Lane, the main artery, can feel clogged up with traffic, but like verdant lungs, Wood Green has parkland to the west (Alexandra Park) and east (Lordship Rec). Haringey Council has been working hard to beautify some of the grittier corners, too. If you stand still long enough, you will be landscaped.
What are the supermarket options?
Is the area family-friendly?
Noel Park and Scotch Estates offer family-friendly Victorian terraces. Plus the world-class Alexandra Park School is in range.
Is there a market at the weekend?
Myddleton Road Market is on the edge of the area and gathers local producers, vintage traders and street food on the first Sunday of the month – watch out for its seasonal takeovers at Blue House Yard.
