We’re picking up reports of spurious local descriptors from estate agents – Wharfdale Road is in Bloomsbury apparently – so we thought we’d have some fun of our own with some candidates for a re-branded Kings Cross, rather than leave it to Foxtons. With all the N1C stuff (and good luck to them) we wondered how you could rebrand old Kings Cross – you know where we mean, the bits largely East of York Way, North and South of Euston/Pentonville Road.
What on earth would you call a re-branded Kings Cross? We’ve put on the red glasses, stroked our beards, held no focus groups and brainstormed with a Post It wall using the best agile methods to come up with this list for your amusement, pleasure and delectation, drawing upon the rich history of idiosyncratic, lewd or metonymic British place names reflecting past and future uses. We’d love your suggestions to add to the following:
Kings Cross Village
West Barnsbury West
Kings Cross Shire
Battlebridge on Fleet
KoHo (Trademark applied for)
Let us know favourites or suggestions in the comments or by email or on twitter or The Facebook – then we may have a vote. There might be a prize for the best suggestions [update we now have a prize of £50 drinks at Rotunda Kings Place]. And NO it isn’t serious….
