King's Cross is London's most fascinating neighbourhood - loosely defined by the area around the station to the north for about a mile, south, east and west about half a mile. Covered by the boroughs of Camden and Islington.
Happy to give local businesses, organisations and causes a chance to promote themselves, but please consider the audience and don't post more than one self-promotional thing per week.
Please be nice in the comments - it's possible to get across even controversial views politely.

King's Cross Thameslink station is a closed railway station in central London, England, which served the Thameslink route. It was replaced by new Thameslink platforms at St Pancras in December 2007. The last operator of the station was First Capital Connect. The site is on Pentonville Road, about 160yd from King's Cross station.The station occupied part of the original site of the Metropolitan Railway's 1863 King's Cross station. Its original street buildings were a little further west than the later station frontage and, though in poor repair, may still be seen. The Thameslink platforms on the City Widened Lines were separated only by a newer wall from the site of the Underground platforms, which may still be seen on the west side from Underground trains travelling between King's Cross St. Pancras and Farringdon stations.The two platforms at King's Cross Thameslink were lettered rather than numbered, to avoid confusion with the platforms at nearby King's Cross among staff who worked at both stations, which may have been regarded as part of the same station complex. A similar situation exists at Waterloo East station, an annexe of London Waterloo, and the use of platform letters has been continued on the new Thameslink platforms at St Pancras.
