"When I first came to Islington, I knew immediately that I wanted to build my life here. Besides, I was working in the City, and I really liked the fact that this area was close to the office. Of course, twenty years ago it looked different; there were more independent shops, an interesting mix of people everywhere - professionals and ordinary blue-collar workers. There was (and still is) an understanding of normality of life here, which really appealed to me.
