Great stuff. Brixton seems to have cleaned up a bit even since the last time I was there!

Well, it isn't pretty, but you can't deny the fact that it has character!

Brixton has a really cool vibe, South London is where it's at!

Good pics Blindfold.

^Judging from these pics I don´t find the area very ugly. The "victorian flats" pic is very beatiful.

In my opinion it is arguably the most diverse community in London, ethnically speaking anyway.
