Of these, 46 per cent are owner occupied. The borough is characterised by some intense contrasts. Locations within the west, like Highgate, Muswell Hill and Crouch End are amongst the most prosperous in the country. In the east of the borough, however, some wards are classified as being amongst the most deprived ten per cent inside the country.
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 off to the flat, open low-lying land alongside the River Lea in the east. A few of the more familiar nearby landmarks consist of Alexandra Palace, Bruce Castle, Jacksons Lane, Highpoint I and II, and Tottenham Hotspur Football Club.
