Reviews of Abercrombie Street, Chippendale

"a regrettable mistake"

True story: we are a young family moved in to abercrombie street to what seemed to be a beautiful terrace with top roof garden. The reality is that abercrombie street is not a place to live for unless you are a student. The street is just too busy and noisy and air quality is poor so windows must be closed. What left from the dieing garden was not worth a visit. I just paid 4000$ to break lease to pay the difference between 630$ and a significant lower price per week just so I can move out (btw be careful what you sign with some of the properties agencies such as bell and insist to have breaking lease option in the contract otherwise you are trapped really strong and will have to pay a lot like me...

"Warning - only for first-time renters!!!"

Interesting proposition, Abercrombie Street. And not a proposition for young families, retirees or even young professionals. This is a great utility address for first-time renters - uni students or those in late teens/early twenties who want cheap rent in a central location. It is an ugly, noisy street but at that age you've got your stereo blasting and you don't really care (and there is a lot of resident/student noise in this street!). We drove our 'young professional' thirty-something neighbor nuts when we were there. He bought it expecting an investment to live in and found constant parties every night. He soon moved. But that was what was great about this street - we were all about the same age, we left our doors open in the evening for eachother to pass in and out as desired. We held parties on weekends. The worst thing about the address? The danger of robbery, for a start - also, the trucks screaming down there en route to Broadway and of course, the stench of the Carlton Brewery in summertime. Only for young, young adults! Don't say I didn't warn you guys!
