Harringay, Haringey - So Good they Spelt it Twice!

Hey guys,
I'm interested in the general opinion, of what you think green lanes will look like in say 3 years? I know gentrification is a dicey topic, but curios if green lanes will look like Stokey or crouch end? There's already some new shops like bean n barley and harringay local that have popped up, And I wondered what the character of future shops and green lanes might be?

What do you think?

Wood Green is far more strategically important and will enjoy far far more future investment.
I think you're right Tina, on the difference between Green Lanes and Crouch End/Stokey. Green Lanes has shops I need and use every day while the other two have shops that are "nice" but I only use them once in a blue moon. My wish list for new ventures in Green Lanes N4/8 end would be -
A book shop
A men's clothes shop that sells fairly "classic" clobber
A delicatessen (salamis hanging from the ceiling, fresh pasta by weight, that kind of thing)
A fresh fish shop

And I'm not in anyway averse to the odd chain store here and there.

Yes Michael I was thinking of what would be good shops to have on GL next as we have so much already now but a good decent clothes shop for men women and kids although next has alit and TKMaxx in just being greedy my wish list would be a pet shop and a nice toy shop then I would never ever leave Harringay again ever !

Crouch End does have among other things an old-fashioned ironmonger, an electrical goods shop, a hoover repair place, an appliance shop, as well as a a good greengrocer, and a fishmonger

Jam in a Jar, coffee shop... bless! Ha ha ha.

Well, during the day it kinda is? 

Yes that's a good article you link to John. Rich captures our luck with the long awaited changes to our neighbourhood. Haringey GL really is a destination that people come to now from far & wide for a good night out, food, drink ... and live music (including rock, pop, folk & jazz).

Do they though? I agree that it's become way more enticing for a local night out, brunch or pub afternoon - but I've never known anyone to come from 'far and wide' unless, well, specifically invited by me or another local-ish person. 

Oh yes they do - guess it depends where you're hanging out Abster :)
