Local Reviews

I like living close to a park, a library, and a fire station. Near us is a street that has banks, fast food restaurants, a Home Depot and a grocery store.

This is a good school district from k to 12, quiet neighborhood and typical safe to raise family. Parks are nearby and easy access.

I love going to the Grove, it's a nice outdoor shopping center and they decorate it beautifully during the holidays. The view in LA is definitely unique, though its liveliness is in competition with New York. Some people love the energy of this city, while some people prefer a more reserved area. But I like it. Plus, there are a lot of nearby restaurants at my convenience.

I like to live near a big shopping mall because it is very convenient for shopping. If there is also a cinema, it will be even better

Private park. Families feel safe to walk outside at night. Neighbors are friendly. Grocery stores and restaurant are of walking distance.

I don't think my neighborhood is that unique. My favourite thing to do is to go hangout in the downtown.
