Wanna see where I am moving to? Here's a pic of the building - I don't endorse the agent or anything, just linking to the page for the info and pic.

Unfortunately, I'm not in the penthouse.

Some history:

"SAFFRON HILL. A squalid neighbourhood between HOLBORN and CLERKENWELL, densely inhabited by poor people and thieves. It was formerly a part of Ely-gardens, [see Ely House], and derives its name from the crops of saffron which it bore. It runs from Field-lane into Vine-street, so called from the Vineyard attached to old Ely House. The clergymen of St. Andrew's, Holborn, (the parish in which the purlieu lies), have been obliged, when visiting it, to he accompanied by policemen in plain clothes.

Peter Cunningham, Hand-Book of London, 1850"

From here. Beautifully written bit about Victorian Clerkenwell.
