Haringey finds uniqueness in its contrasts. Taking in genteel Highgate in the west and gritty Tottenham in the east, the borough contains four of the capital’s richest and five of its poorest wards, making it the most economically unequal in the capital. While a dubious distinction, Haringey also has much to be proud of. Its rich cultural offering ignores socioeconomics to permeate the entire borough – from Tottenham’s Marcus Garvey Centre to Finsbury Park’s annual Wireless Festival.
Breaking the capital’s taboo on approaching strangers in the street, we roamed Haringey to ask how people feel about the borough.
