In accordance with population estimates from the middle of 2014, Haringey includes a permanent population of around 267541 inhabitants. There are roughly 97101 properties in Haringey. Just over 55 per cent of residents in Haringey reside in flats, apartments or maisonettes. The borough is characterised by some extreme contrasts. Locations in the west, such as Highgate, Muswell Hill and Crouch End are among the most prosperous in the nation. Within the east of the borough, however, some wards are classified as being among the most deprived 10 per cent in the nation.
Haringey is also a borough of contrasts geographically. From 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 beside the River Lea in the east. Some of the more familiar nearby landmarks include Alexandra Palace, Bruce Castle, Jacksons Lane, Highpoint I and II, and Tottenham Hotspur Football Club.
