This is meant to be one of nicest, most expensive boroughs of London, but it seems if you’ve not been mugged, then you will get mugged by the local estate agent, as prices to buy or let are beyond beggars belief. This manor which includes the Shepherd’s Bush ghetto, is one mass polluted, overcrowded, dirty areas, where everyone walks around afraid of what’s round the corner.
They majority of streets in this manor are a mix of posh houses next to a mix of fairly to very run down houses and it just don’t make sense. Any other part of the country separation rules. Why spend a million pounds on a three bed terrace when you got a bunch of smack and crack addicts living next door. Then you got the big council estates littered across the borough where the real nitty gritty ‘yeah get me bruv’ take place.
I spent two years living there and after having my car broke into twice, a scrap outside a pub with two piss heads who wouldn’t let me walk passed and my wife getting spat on and threats of ‘ I’ll slice you up’, not forgetting the local street sweeper being murdered by a local crack head in a botched burglary. I would much rather live in Hull than this big fat dump of borough.
P.s. on the day of moving out I dumped my mattress on the pavement which was accompanied by fridge someone else had dumped there a few days before. Dumping furniture on the street is real past time in this borough. If you love breathing in diesel fumes all day long, then this is the place for you.
