I was born in Stoke Newington, London where Poe lived some of his life, growing up my friends family owned a wine bar which was his school for a while when he lived here as a teenager, there is a bust mounted on the side of it now and it’s currently a shop that’s being refurbished. As someone interested in the local history here, is there much of note about his time here? I only know he was here as a younger man, so there might not be much more to say about it but anything would be interesting.

It’s a really nice area, in lots of ways it still feels like a village within London (as lots of areas within London do), and you would be able to go into the shop that was once his school, and the woman that currently runs it is really nice there is a plaque and bust on the outside but other than that I’m not aware of any other Poe related things in the area, so I’m not sure how worth it the area would be on purely a Poe related expedition unless you know of other things here worth seeing in that context.
