Keep Hackney crap
Dalston riot, July 1981
A little something, something for everyone...
Stik in Shoreditch: the artist’s hidden tribute to a sold-off London – video
I had seen that on Facebook
Interesting piece of Hackney history I've just come across, there was once a Victorian Turkish Bath in Ashwin Street at Dalston Junction.
History here VICTORIAN TURKISH BATHS: London: Ashwin Street: Dalston Junction Turkish Baths |
So Essex Rd's closed for the next while as they're working on that water main. Just crawled along Upper Street on a 38, chaos at Highbury Corner due to the cycle superhighway works and we're now randomly going round Canonbury.
No announcements about being on diversion either. If I'd known about this, I'd have walked as it'd have been quicker. From Shaftesbury Avenue. FFS.
Is it closed for a while then
I found out by chance as I had to get to a Solicitors near Essex Rd station from Angel station after work on Wednesday and was going to get a bus, got off in Upper St and cut through Canonbury in the end.
Until the 23rd of June according to the TFL website. Not clear if its just northbound or both ways though.
Plans unveiled to turn Savoy Cinema into Hackney Arts Centre
I went on one of the 'tours' to see around this yesterday when Epic was hosting the Flea Market.
Very interesting - the picture shows what was the circle of the cinema, a false ceiling was put over the ground floor to make it an events room some years ago.
Great to see that the 1930's decor has survived.
The acid attacks last week ! Club in London Fields - I'm guessing the club is near E5 Bakehouse? . Main culprit (b/f of a reality tv star) had been nicked - 2 people lost sight in one eye - nasty business.
Yes, it's awful, can't imagine why anyone would be so stupid as to do something like that in a packed club.
I've not heard of the club before, it looks like it was some sort of commercial premises beforehand. I didn't know the street name but I think it's one of those side roads that run between Mare Street and London Fields - up by the bus garage somewhere?
Exactly not the sort of acid related club incident you want. Stupid celeb twats.
Keeps being reported as Dalston but it's in one of those ex light industrial units between LF station and Mare St.
Big diversion from central London, buses on normal route to central London. It's a diabolical liberty tho
Guess there's not much to be done apart from tell people it's on diversion. V annoying that it's coinciding with the works at Highbury Corner though.
Building proposals which will affect the light in Dalston Eastern Curve Garden.....from Open Dalston newsletter
OPEN Dalston: Thames House, 4 Hartwell Street, E8 3DU planning application 2017/0320 – OPEN Dalston’s objections
Please help by objecting to Hackney Council if you so wish, It's a great little garden built up from nothing by volunteers.
New cafe in Upper Clapton , The Dialogue 2 doors from Sodo on the high street. A strange place called The Residence used to be there ,that was a cafe/interiors place which failed . This is more of a brunchy place ,full of young folk but staff were lovely ,bit hipsterish but food was fine.
I am loving The Mermaid on Cricketfield Road - replaced Verden which replaced The Cricketers. It's expensive - full of young folk, but the ale is fantastic.
Hackney Central best neighborhood in London (if you're empty headed enough to think that London is just some sort of playground for eating and drinking that is). Clapton, Stoke Newington and Dalston also all in the top 10.
The Places To Be 2017: what's the best neighbourhood in London?
Yet another craft ale place has opened , The Axe on Northwold Road ,taken over from that occasional Belgian Bar , Jan's.
Bit of a garden area at the back ,loads of lovely (but pricy ale )
