the Zone 2 place at the moment is New Cross...it's the only place artists can afford to rent studio space any more. this is not a surprise as the place is dodge as fuck.
i always judge whether or not i like a place based on how many beer monsters i encounter on a night out. sadly, as soon as a few articles come out about 'x' place, they all flock lke sheep...i think hoxton square has been ruined by them :o(
anyway, my view is there isnt anywhere proper cool in london anymore, and it's all about breaking trends. i think it's time for camden to become fashionable again! i also think it's about time docklands got some proper character....it's better than it used to be, but on the main canary wharf development, it's still mainly chain bars/restaurants which is a shame. saying that, maybe anything more would be wasted on the soulless morons that work/live there.
