On our trip to London last October we visited Shoreditch, a district of East London which is known for it's street art and it's gentrification. I spent a semester in London in the 90's and have visited twice after but had never have been to this area. I loved it! The art, the gritty cool vibe and the creative air. It reminds me of the Meatpacking District and the East Village in New York. Fascinating!
