The fact is though this area is better than other areas like Wood Green, Tottenham etc.

Basketball teams and court locations

Hi all,

I've just read a number of posts from people who'd like to play basketball in East Finchley. I too would love to play. There are 2 courts in East Finchley, one cherry tree park and the other is just outside the park.

How could we all get in touch to arrange a game? According to the replies, it'll probably be a mixed match (guys-girls) if that's ok with everyone.

Lets pin a time and date to play a game!

East Finchley: Not safe as expected

I moved in the area thinking it was safe but since I am here (6 months) I heard and read in the local newspaper:

- one man dead for shootout closed the children centre

- another stabbed in the throat in the high street

- a teenager stabbed in cherry tree wood

- 98 residential burglaries and 44 non residential

I believe a safe area is not like this...

Taunton/Blackdown ok...?

I'm moving to London to start a new job next month. After looking at a few prospective areas to live and deciding (quite easily, as it turned out) upon East Finchley, I've been checking prices of 1 & 2 bedroom flats. There seem to be an number of places for sale in the Taunton Drive/Blackdown Close area and whilst I realize it's a bit of a walk from the tube station, I was wondering if there were any other reasons for people selling there. The area itself looks nice.
