    Okay, unfortunately the place I was supposed to live in...well, I got jerked around and they gave it to someone else, which I learned a whole two days ago.

    So now I am being forced to live in Elswick, which I know isn't very good from my friends who live in Newcastle.

    Second year student, by the way. But just how bad IS Elswick?

    I would say the nearer you go to the river, the worse it gets, but its not all terrible.
    You could sum it up with sights like this:

    Some of the streets are alright - depends where you live really. How come you're being forced to live in Elswick of all places?
