Albert Road, NW4

This house is directly opposite the building formerly known as Jews College (now the London School of Jewish Studies, LSJS). I was there on Sunday, and was very taken with this house.

Hendon - which used to be my number one place I wanted to live, but that was a long time ago - is suburban. Mostly. There's lots of streets of nice semis and terraces, pretty uniform, mostly with mezzuzahs on their doors. It's a pretty Jewish area. There are lots of shuls.

So I can't help wondering who these people are. Their house massively stands out, when you walk up the street. They've chosen to live opposite LSJS. They probably don't make up the morning minyan. They're ... alternative? Creative? Do yoga? Into self-epxression?
