1986 WOOD GREEN SHOPPING CITY..2

 The shopping city is unique, because  
 above the shops is the "Village in the
 sky".   There are about 201 units for 
 more than 500 people to live in.  The 
 three and four storey terraces look   
 over the pedestrian courtyards with   
 private patios on the outside.        
 People travel to Wood Green by bus,   
 car and tube.  They go to buy clothes 
 and food and to use Building Societies
 and Banks. There are plenty of        
 Restaurants for snacks and meals.     
 People also go to Wood Green to work.
