Yes I understand that there is poverty in Tottenham but I have felt a growing sense of ambition amongst my peers and others in my community to achieve something.Furthermore the portrayal of Tottenham in the media is biased and untrue; and I feel that people base their understanding of Tottenham on this when they have never even been to Tottenham." So I think that it is the most dangerous place in London.
I have lived here now sixteen years, born and raised, luckily I am alive but there is no way I'm raising my kids here. In the evening, I was just walking around with my friends when a guy with a knife as long as my forearm came towards us. Brixton is a very fatal area of London, near Peckham.
Reading the comments and releasing what negative connotations people have or Tottenham nearly brought tears to my eyes.
I have lived in Tottenham all my life and have felt a sense of community; I also feel lucky that due to the cultural diversity in Tottenham I have learnt about other cultures - broadening my horizons.
Others may have been to Tottenham once or twice, have had a negative experience and decided to once again based their understanding on this.
stay away because it's your best option for you and the people you love I was once in peckham with my two best friends, we were walking through the streets at night when we heard a loud bang.Two men in hoodies walked towards us from across the street and one of them pulled out something from their jacket, I didn't see what it was but I directly grabbed my friends hands and we started to run, we got away luckily enough.
