According to population estimates in the middle of 2014, Haringey features a permanent population of about 267541 individuals. There are approximately 97101 properties in Haringey. Of these, 46 per cent are owner occupied. The borough is characterised by some intense contrasts. Locations in the west, like Highgate, Muswell Hill and Crouch End are among the most prosperous in the nation. In the east of the borough, however, some wards are classified as being among the most deprived 10 per cent inside the nation.
Haringey is also a borough of contrasts geographically. In the wooded high ground around Highgate and Muswell Hill, at 426.5 feet (130.0 m), the land falls sharply away to the flat, open low-lying land close to the River Lea in the east. A few of the more familiar nearby landmarks include Alexandra Palace, Bruce Castle, Jacksons Lane, Highpoint I and II, and Tottenham Hotspur Football Club.
