it was a new low for hackney council, the way they treated him
iirc - it was more your manor than mine, so you were around more - although I did manage some housing nearby for a while

Feeling a bit sorry for Hackney's Orthodox Jewish community today with this weather, it's their Purim celebration when the kids wear fancy dress and the young guys ride around playing Kletzmer music.
Yeah it's their one day to properly cut loose
Still a few fezzes and stuff about, but it's not the same.
Also I feel sorry for this swan

Hackney buses: Council takes on TfL over cuts to frequency and routes – and wants to know what you think
Have done - I only have a couple of gripes tbf - 254 changing drivers at Stamford Hill, I don't see why they can't change drivers at either end - Whitechapel or Finsbury Park . And more 393s, it has never,ime, been a regular service.

Photos of Stoke Newington Church Street from 1990 . I started coming to the area in 1992 when I met Mrs21, the street sure has changed
Great to see. I wished Chris Dorley Brown would publish some of his great pics of Hackney from the 80s/90s (he's put out a few more niche picture books) because they really evoke how I most remember the area.

I wouldn't be able to afford to rent here

Quite a few of my friends -- the ones renting privately basically -- have moved out of the borough over the last five years due to rocketing rents. It's disgusting.
used to know lots of people who lived in hackney, but so many have moved out... tbh the places they're moving to are gaining whereas so many yuppies and hipsters move into hackney, all over the shop, the borough's almost unrecognisable. yeh you knew shit was happening in e.g. shoreditch and up the kingsland road but all along the canal - and estates ripped down to make way for yuppies...
Same - pretty much all the people I used to go to the pub with who are in their 30s are now in south London or Kent or wherever.
