"Leafy, mixed in terms of demographic, very diverse with different socio-economic backgrounds. Safe, nice atmosphere, easy to get to Notting Hill, Queensway, Westfield and town, or to escape out of town. I wouldn't live anywhere else. Lived here for 30 years...great mix of restaurants and cuisines."
