Old Oak Common is a pretty ramshackle part of town; there isn’t too much going on and the people who live here are often trying to find a way out. It is home to a lot of students and artists who can’t afford to live anywhere else.
Still, there is hope that a new rejuvenation project will bring more people, businesses, and schooling into the area. There is even a chance that there will be a football stadium soon.
