Stroud Green probably isn't well known, maybe as it doesn't have a station in it's own name. But transport connections are very good - at one end of the Stroud Green Road you have Finsbury park station, which is on the Victoria and Piccadilly lines and also Thameslink trains - and at the other end there's Crouch Hill which is on the London Overground. It's also a pretty attractive place, with streets of lovely looking period houses. Admittedly the high street is a bit mixed with some ugly bits like the big tesco but hey at least that's convenient. Morleys and betting shops opposite council flats also puts a bit of a downer on things. Some good pubs though including the World's End and the faltering fullback along with easy access to Finsbury Park.
