New Cross, though a small area in south London, will never let you down - there's always something going on. With its diversity of people, it has almost developed a culture of its own, making for an interesting place to grow up. Here are 11 things you'll learn growing up in SE14.

11. The Mexican chicken panini at La Boulangerie in New Cross Gate is the best you will ever taste. At a reasonable £3.50, it will definitely satisfy.

What is this "South London" crap that the NS have been trying to push down our throats for the past few weeks?

New Cross is South East London, as anybody indigenous to the place will tell you regardless of their race, colour, or creed. Even the accent is different from that found in South London.

Are NS journalists all from Brum?

The "Dew Drop Inn" was the best pub in New Cross, greatest punk pub ever really. The festivals on the green space outside were also a must...

The "Venue" used to be good, before it turned into a tribute band mecca. Lots of great bands started their careers their. Before that it was the "Harp Club" - the best Irish club around - those good days are gone.

I miss those days! So many good bands at the Venue, Back to the Planet etc doing free gigs at Fordham park. A awesome vibe which has carried on to this day, with it's diversity and little cafes and boutiques in NX and the surrounds.
