Stamford Hill, London
Review of Stamford Hill by Mike on July 4th, 2011
Though Stamford Hill is an ethnically (and religiously) diverse district of London it is the Hasidic Jewish community that catches the eye, the men dressed in their traditional garb. Likewise it is the Jewish delis and food shops that give the place an identity.
