Alot of old Tottenham, which part of Harringay was in, grew up around greens; hence Wood Green, West Green, Palmers Green, etc. Harringay was Beanes Green. We still could be, but for Harringay House. See the attached 17th Century map fragment - odly it was drawn with South to the top of the page. The big road on the right is Green Lanes (You get where its name came from now).
