seems to happen a lot in Springfield and Markfield Park. I know of 3 people who were mugged at knife point for their bikes round there at night.just a heads-up for hackney cyclists, one of my colleagues was mugged in springfield park last night and had his bike nicked by a gang. be careful out there!
yeh it is never going to be safe down there, just because of the geography... it is absolute perfect mugging territory. That's what stopped the anchor and hope ever becoming my local, I didn't fancy the walk back at the end of the night.A friend of mine told me, about 10 years ago, not to go walking by the Lea at night, said he wouldn't ride his bike down there either.
The Novel of the White Powder - Wikisource, the free online libraryhaving said that, i'm calm now and would like to apologise. I think J.B. Brodribb in 344, Mare St (opposite Hackney Station, North London Railway) must have mixed up my prescription
i like any story in which the words 'jailed' and 'hackney police officer' are adjacent
having read the story this cop was more than ordinarily vile, stealing from the dead
i've had good reports of kakki katsu on balls pond road, just by dalston junction - not been there yet but will report backFood Alert! Wu's chinese takeaway on upper clapton road (just up from World Foods), which used to be a pretty standard cheap noodle place, has installed a hotpot conveyor belt, which I have never seen anywhere! I took a punt last night even tho it was empty and it is awesome, basically each seat has a hob and you get a bowl of boiling broth, then pick whatever plates you fancy off the conveyor belt in front of you like those sushi places (massive prawns, sliced beef, weird nameless bits of meat) and cook it in the broth... different colour plates are different prices. the lady makes these amazing sauces and she showed me how to do it, it was the nicest food i had on that bit of road and fairly cheap. while I was in there a whole family of chinese people came in and i felt like antony bourdain it was that kind of vibe. it came to £15 with a beer, but I reckon if a few people, or even 2, went you could get the price down and try loads of things. I just happened to be no mates.
I had a walk around the cemetery on Sunday - noticed the Chapel was looking a lot better - there were some seats and a small stage in there - not sure if there had been a concert or there was going to be .Plans signed off last year include a new cafe and events space, as well as further restoration of historic chapelwww.hackneycitizen.co.uk
