1 BR flat near Victoria Park in East London, summer 2021

I live in a sunny 1 BR flat in Bethnal Green, a ten minute walk from the Bethnal Green tube or the Cambridge Heath overground, two minutes from Victoria Park and Regents Canal, and fifteen to twenty minutes from the Stepney Green and Mile End tube stops and Queen Mary University. The flat is on the top floor of a mid-century council housing block, with a smallish bedroom with a queen sized bed, a dining/living room with nice views of Whitechapel and Canary Wharf, a small balcony, a kitchen, a water closet, and a bathroom. There is a good collection of kitchenware, a washing machine, and a dishwasher. The flat is located in a fantastic neighbourhood, with lots of parks and cool bars/restaurants/pubs/shops. It's about a one hour walk to central London, or thirty minutes by tube. (I work at King's College London and usually walk to work.)

Normally, I am in California for the summer, and I hope to be there in summer 2021, depending on the state of the pandemic, lockdowns, etc.

This would also be a good place for someone who would like to regularly be in London between June and September for the next few years, as I expect that in addition to 2021, I will be gone from London for most of the summer in subsequent years.

I'm happy to discuss the various possibilities and contingencies with anyone who is interested.

About Me
I'm a Lecturer in Philosophy of Law at King's College London. I work in ethics, political philosophy, aesthetics, and philosophy of law, with a particular focus on the nature and value of experiences of spontaneity, as in the experiences of someone who is a 'free spirit' or 'free as a bird.' I live in the lovely neighborhood of Bethnal Green, a one minute walk from Victoria Park. I also spend a lot of time in California, where I did my PhD at UCLA and where I still have academic collaborators.
