"We reached what I now know was Victoria Park. Far enough. Far enough away from territory I knew, that northern spine: Stockwell, Kennington, Waterloo, Charing Cross, Leicester Square, Tottenham Court Road, Camden Town, Chalk Farm, Belsize Park...the uncharted territory of this East London park, without tourists or celebrated views, was mysterious and alluring. Anna and I came away delirious, appreciating that there was much more to discover. About London. And about ourselves."
-Iain Sinclair, Hackney, That Rose-Red Empire
