    Hi,

    I am moving down to South Hackney in July for a month to do a menswear fashion placement. Can anyone recommend what I should check out in Hackney or around London?

    Really looking forward to living in London for a bit :D

    I know a squat in Hackney you could live in, the people there are well nice and they'd probably let you stay if ou sold drugs with them

    your moving t oHackney from the Midlands.. erm.. dont take my word for it , London is cool ... but Hackney is not so nice... not 100% sure either way tho really... maybe some of the London living regulars can help.. but i always thought id stay clear of hackney .. perhaps im wrong and its made of candy floss i dunno

    ahhh thats sound then .. yea.. dont rekon its that bad .. you hear bad things about places and they never that bad ,.. if you was a lad in a gang, at 2.00am down some dodgy back alley, then theres gunna be dodgy people about.. you just gotta get on with it .. you'll be jumping on the tube alot and visiting places more central london is my guess... but as i said , i may have hackney all wrong ..

    dont worry tho, youll be fine ... you'll meet ppl in ure halls .. just dont hang around on the estates at night, which i doubt you'll do , and you will be fine ..

    Yeah I hope it's not as bad as some make it sound! Like you say there is trouble in all areas I can't let it scare me off. I would prefer to be living near where I am working than half way across london and having to get the tube everyday!

    i think its worse if you are a black lad , in a gang to be fair .. no racism .. just pure fact, that these are the kinda lads that get stabbed.. you may just get ure phone jacked if your walking the streets of hackers late at night .. just stay in ure halls at night, go out in central london ...and dont hanfg around on the estates.. and you will be fine

    Yeah most of London isnt as bad as its made out to be. Having said that there are alot of places where its better to be sensible than pissing about out of your mind at night.

    You should have a laugh anyway, try and reach as many nights as possible - this is where the real party is at :)

    Hackney's not that bad anymore. i used to live there when i was popping bluds with my mini beretta. but when i moved out it all seemed to calm down.

    Its close to highbury/shoreditch/angel where theres all sorts of shit going down. check out shoreditch for nightlife esp
