I'm moving to London in a couple of months, and i'd like to find somewhere
to live; i'll be working (well, PhDing) at UCL, so north/west London would
be good. Does anyone know the areas around there? I've already had
suggestions for Kilburn, Tufnell Park, Archway, Finsbury Park, and
Highbury; i've thought about Camden but discounted on grounds of cost :(.
So, if anyone has something to share (whether opinions on the places i
mention or suggestions for other places), i would be eternally grateful if
they could write about it on the openguide!
I'm going to ask on uk.local.london as well; i'll report everything i
learn back to the site.
or are they poststructuralist terrorists? perhaps we shall never truly know.
As it stands, some Locale pages describe roads; I don't think this is
granular enough (e.g., Strand redirects to Locale Strand, which describes
The situation I set up for Brick Lane and Category Brick Lane reflects how I
feel we should abstract out the concept of 'locale' - "Brick Lane" is a road,
and as such exists in Category Roads; its locale is "Locale Brick Lane".
Locale Brick Lane itself is in Locale East London. I've been trying to
implement a locale hierarchy, in order that people looking at locale pages
can be given a vague idea of where the locale is located in London itself -
meta-locales, so to speak. If people could start adding these descriptors
(West London, East London, Southeast London, Central London, etc.) to all the
locale pages, then that would be great.
