Limehouse, London

I must have taken hundreds of pictures in The East End by now, but I do love the place. Every time Im there I always find something new ; a new place, a new angle etc. Its a fascinating area and its a shame that many people hate it. Yes its rough in parts but its the same everywhere. I think this hostility is bred by ignorance and rumour. If you like history and architecture then you must get down here.

Nice photos, but I find Limehouse bleak and empty.

It is empty, its largely residential area, however it does have pockets of liveliness - Narrow Street is usually packed in the evenings and on summer weekends.

Some of the renovated warehouses look really nice. But in some parts it looks gloomy and not so inviting.

Is this lower working class neighbourhood or middle class?
