what's it like living here? the north/east part near the stadium (not too near the stadium though). it seems to be quite well linked and equally cheap.

Don't/haven't lived there however have worked quite local for quite a few years. I don't especially like the good pubs, no bookshops :). But transport links are relatively good, and it most likely would be cheapish...well London cheapish.

I've got a pair of mates who live there and love it. Sorry I can't be more helpful. I do recall that the time/place most likely to get mugged around 13 years ago, in London, was Bruce Grove station on a Sunday afternoon :).

had some friends who lived there for about 10 years - near the Broadwater Farm estate - said they had no problems - but when they had a kid - they moved to St Albans

I don't really like the decent pubs

The review of this tottenham pub makes it sounds fantastic though predominantly the last line:

I found this treasure of a pub in a small alcove off Tottenham High Road. I was amazed of the cultural dualism of this little gem in Scotland Green.

The outside bar had the windows broken and was solely populated by people of an Afro Carribean nature The general consensus of the abundant revellers was complimentary to Irish bar staff who gave them a heartfelt welcome after their own 'watering hole " THE SWAN" had closed down.

The inside bar the "Traveller's Friend" was thronged by the young and old from the local travelling community.

I was told it was a Gypsy Wedding which is a frequent occurence in this lively bar. The King of the Gypsies.... John Frain..... paid tribte to the singer..DI O 'REA... barstaff and the man who will be fixing the windows.

I enjoyed immensely this bizarre and unique experience and plan to return when the windows have been replaced.

I imagine that's why they moved - she was getting to educate age

The Swan was quite close to Seven Sisters - it stopped up after a woman (I think) was shot dead just outside :(. There does appear to be quite a lot of gang associated unpleasantness in the area :(.

(I work in Edmonton BTW, which is the other side of Tottenham High Road/Fore Street)

EtA: ever since the riot there has been a lot of cash pumped into the area, so things will with any luck improve.

seven sisters is quite a way south from where we are sort of looking.... so more up towards wherever you work (but not so far away as edmonton)

i suppose i just want to find out if my partner would feel safe on foot back from the station/to the shops (goes with no saying i feel safe as i am tough), and if the entire area turns into a no-go on tottenham home game days.

Used to be good when the plough was open & ahead of the unwaged centre closed
