Clerkenwell and Finsbury, London

London, England, Europe: Extra! Extra! Tabloids and magazines for sale in Clerkenwell.
England's insider take:

The medieval Knights of St. John gave way—over a few centuries—to the new denizens of the hot restaurants and bars of St. John Street: designers and architects, stylists and photographers, and so forth, as far as the eye can see. Apart from Wapping and some other dockside areas, this is the only part of the city where factory and warehouse loft conversions abound, giving it all a distinct modern vibe. Groovy shops merge into Smithfield, the meat market, and hence to what used to be called, not un-snobbishly, the East End. The latter is now better known as the hipster hangouts of Hoxton and Shoreditch, Spitalfields, Whitechapel, and Bethnal Green.
