Islington, London

I have a character who has spent the better part of the twentieth century living in one street. I spent a lot of time looking for the appropriate place to keep her, since the area needs to be economically and racially diverse, but affluent enough to have an antique store and a watchmaker's. I also need for my character to be living above a shop.

So I looked around at property guides and the London phone directory, and noticed a bunch of watchmakers in Islington. Wikipedia tells me that this is an economically diverse kind of area, gentrified in the 1990s and trendy, but the property guides and so forth only talk about the affluence and fashionability. I worry that real British people will laugh at me, so if anyone has any thoughts or advice, I'd be very grateful.
