Containing Europe's largest Hasidic population, there are more synagogues in Stamford Hill than in the rest of London. Only New York City has a larger population outside of Israel. This is a tightknit community where everyone seems to know each other and multi-generational families share meals together frequently and socialize with their neighbors.

Larger homes and yards characterize this area and unlike other parts of London, the houses haven’t been broken up into apartments. The market is somewhat crowded, but the area is developing rapidly so there are smaller, newer homes on the market.

The concentration of families here has led to some of the best schools in the area, including Simon Marks, a Jewish primary school, and Springfield Community Primary School.

A lot of the local businesses are connected to the hasidic community, including the famous Grodzinski bakery in Clapton Common.

One drawback of the area is that there isn’t a lot of green space or parks. Another is that there is no local underground station, but there are plenty of buses. 

Stamford Hill is bordered on the north by South Tottenham, on the east by Clapton, on the south by Stoke Newington, and on the west by Woodberry Down.
