Stoke Newington lies rather high on the north side, a little to the north-east of Islington. Rents very moderate, but perhaps a little higher than those of Islington; the situation being more open, and the houses of a somewhat superior character. NEAREST Railway Station, Rectory-road and Stoke Newington (G.E.R.); Omnibus Routes, Stoke Newington-road and Albion-road.
