Transpontine has spotted a New York Times article with the headline "In London, New Cross and Deptford Attract the Hip."

We didn't find the piece as toecurling as Transpontine did, but it does open as follows:

The coming of New Cross and Deptford has been predicted for some time. It won’t be an easy ride. The area lies in an inglorious corner of southeast London; those with well-cushioned sensibilities need not make the journey. But with the unpolished location comes that most heady of urban ingredients: an edge. For now, these neighboring districts still feel more like eccentric outposts than uncut diamonds.
