The Hornsey Road's Myspace page

is long dormant, but it does have this description:

'Hornsey Road, in the London Borough of Islington, is the epitome of urban chic. Snaking its way through the middle of a series of recently rejuvenated and "up and coming" areas (Finsbury Park, Holloway, Stroud Green, Archway, Crouch End) without being part of any of them, Hornsey Road has managed to retain a special kind of street charm that is tragically becoming rare in modern London. 

None of these nouveau riche areas wants Hornsey Road, and Hornsey Road doesn't want any of them. Hornsey Road exists in its own time and space, like that alternate 1985 in Back to the Future II where Biff's in charge and there's tanks on the street and prostitutes everywhere.

Whoever wrote that should write more.
