Bethnal Green Some questions about living in Bethnal Green  

I recently moved (yesterday) to a flat in the council housing just south of Bethnal Green Tube and east of Cambridge Heath Road. I first visited the flat at night so I knew what I was getting into.

First question: As a 27 yo woman should I be concerned with walking home at night from the tube or night buses? I'm an American student who has been in London for 7 months mainly around the Manor House, Highbury, Finsbury Park Areas (I've moved a lot) and I have never felt unsafe walking home at, say 3AM.

Second, is there a good place to buy local, well priced fruit and vegetables in the Bethnal Green area, either from a store or market?

And lastly, this is just out of pure curiosity, why does it seem like there are no Americans in London? Have yet to meet one outside of school but everyone tells me we are everywhere! Maybe it's because I never go to west London? Who knows...

Thanks for the help!

Bethnal Green Dunbridge St - is it safe?  

Dunbridge Street - is it safe?

Hello,

I have an offer for a flat that is being finalized and it is on Dunbridge Street, where Cheshire Street, ends. Can you please tell me if this is a safe area? Would it be okay for a woman to walk around by herself at night (10 pm- midnight)? I would likely be walking from the Bethnal Green tube stop or the closest 8 bus stop of Bethnal Green Road.

Thanks!

I am researching the stories behind the Cyprus Street war memorial for a history film project. I would be very grateful to hear from anyone who knows about the history of the street, particularly relatives of the people named on the memorial. I am trying to find out as much as possible about the people who died and the effect on their families. Best Wishes. Terry Messenger

Bethnal Green Bethnal Green Russia Lane Safety  

Generally ok.

Always best to practice safety anywhere. I havent experienced any negative incidents when i was living there.

Bethnal Green is one of the nice parts of the borough. Especially Victoria Park area.

Hope that helps.

Bethnal Green nothing to worry about.  

don't know if you have moved to russia lane.

just for re-assurance, i was born and brought up just round the corner from russia lane, went to the primary school across the road from there.

one of my closest friends lives in russia lane and i visit 2-3 times a week.

the area is nice, very good for public transport & its safe, trust me. i'v been there/go there all times of the day and evening but no trouble.

you do see the usual groups of youth that look trouble but they are no harm & yes i agree with the other reply that victoria park is lovely, you won't be far from it only a minutes walk from the gates.

hope that helps.

Bethnal Green 63 Cyprus Street - Fidler Family  

Hello. I've just stumbled upon this site - I'm amazed! My nan was born in this house in 1882 - she was Annie Louisa and her parents were Frederick William and Catherine (formerly Lye). Freddie was a Brewers Servant (yes that's what is says on her birth cert!) I know it was a long time ago but would be interested to know who lives there now?
Thanks for posting - so important to remember the past, isn't it?

Bethnal Green Maureen Feldman 1944 - 2009  

Did anybody know Maureen Feldman. She was brought up in and around Stepney Green before moving to Harold Hill circa 1951. She went on to run pubs such as The Merry Fiddler's in Dagenham (early 60's) right up to 2009 with The Flying Scotsman, Caledonian Road. Sadly she died New Years Eve 2009. If anybody has any recollections of her I would love to hear from you. I can be contacted on  Mail-me

Bethnal Green BETHNAL GREEN CYPRUS STREET  

My Great Grandfather Joseph Arno lived at No.59 from at least 1921 untill he died in 1947. The house was still there last time I looked. There are a lot of French Surnames on the memorial, these were descendents of the Huguenot weavers who settled in Spitalfields and Bethnal Green about 1700, as were my ancestors, our name was originally spelt Arnau but it was changed to Arno.

Bethnal Green Music rehearsal room sought  

Hi,

I'm a classically trained singer looking for a small rehearsal room to practice singing on a regular basis. A soundproof room in East/Central/North London would be ideal.

It would only be me using the space.

I would be practicing Mon, Tues, Wed and Friday evenings 7-9pm and on Saturday and Sunday 2-4pm. These times are flexible depending on the owners needs.

I am able to pay 100 per month and am responsible and respectful of any hired space. I welcome anyone who has a spare room to drop me a line!

It is indeed. My flatmate very often come back from a night out on her own. Having said that, everyone should practice safety precautions i.e. crossing the road to avoid suspicious characters.  Mail-me

Hi there, Im moving to Bethnal Green, into a new student housing thing there, and was wondering, after reading some of the entries on here, if Three Colts Lane is a reasonably safe area?

It is perfectly safe area. I am guessing it is the newly built building opposite the park which is very close to Bethnal Green tube. If you are lucky you may have a great view from your room!  Mail-me
