    I'm from Croydon, South London, a vibrant and rapidly growing and gentrifying urban area. House prices are set to go through the roof here as people pour out of the inner cities and into cheap, less well off suburbs.

    Ask me anything about Croydon, London or life in general!

    Ask you about "Croydon".

    But there's nothing worth asking about when it comes to Croydon.
    Lmfao. Your username sounds like something someone from Croydon would use.

    Lol I was joking with the 'ends ' stuff- Croydon is actually becoming more clean and gentrified now. Crime has fallen and Croydon isn't even in the top ten London boroughs for crime rate anymore. The DSN boys are gone as well now!

    Yeah that was four years ago though. I'm kind of glad that the riots happened- a lot of the thugs got locked up and the area around the burned buildings has been regenerated now with nice new apartments where young professionals can live. The atmosphere (and house prices) are changing! The place doesn't really deserve its reputation anymore apart from a few rough edges in west Croydon- I live a bit from the town centre by still in Croydon. Obviously it's not exactly a nice middle class suburb like Sutton but it's getting better.

    How do you not know where it is? It's a large town/ borough in London- one of the cheapest places to live in London!

    Nah but I'm near the ends where some gang hangs out. Croydon is changing fast though!

    That's good to hear, I live in South West London, so I sometimes pass Croydon on occasion.

    Where would you say was the best area in London?

    Sutton and Cheam are quite nice- not really a traditional bit of London though- in London I would say probably Kensington or Richmond. Croydon will never be one of those luxury family places but I think it will be quite nice for young professionals- lots of bars and restaurants are popping up so it might become a little like ShoreDitch in the future but cheaper.

    It's not really a big problem- only a few people get killed in London as a proportion of the population compared to cities like Chicago or even Glasgow. I don't think knife crime can go much lower unless the demographics of London change- for example if a lot of poorer people, who commit the majority of gang related stabbings, leave the city, which won't happen. I think a more important issue is housing and road safety. My parents are struggling to buy a house here in one of the cheapest parts of Croydon and they both work full time.
