Daily Writing Journal: My London Hood - St Pancras Square - Where the Google and Universal Creatives hang out!
In between Kings Cross Station and St Pancras International (the train station to Europe) is the new St Pancras Square. New in that given most of the streets and squares in London are hundreds of years old. This is the home of Google and Universal. There are also the some typical restaurants and high-end fast food chains for those creatives to chow at. Namely Leon, a bar and another Far East restaurant.
What I find intriguing is the there appears to be some apple macs in the google offices, don't quote me on that. They also have a gym where you can see them working out, and it's rumoured they get free food, again rumoured or alleged.
This is the universal lot, the building looked unfinished but I didn't take a picture of that. I have an old but I needed to meet this.
What I find quite interesting is at lunch time, there is a particular restaurant at the back in the Granary Square where it seems full of people having lunch meeting on expense accounts. It's very bizarre and weird because after 2 pm the restaurant practically empties.
This is a picture showing the St Pancreas station. There are lots of gothic and neo-goethic buildings in London which I never noticed before doing this blog. One rarely does around looking at building in one's home town. Normally, I'm just going about my business and interested in getting to my destination.
Doing this blog had made me appreciate the magnificence and magic of London's building. I don't take pictures at every opportunity or if I do, nor do I post them but I am appreciating this city more. I do have some posh locations for my book - partly set in the fictional US city, Forechester and London so I'll feature them when I'm writing a scene.
