What do you think is the most underrated/under the radar neighborhood in Long Beach, CA? Wrigley? East Village? Alamitos Beach? Bluff Heights? Carroll Park? Other?

I personally like Bluff Heights and think it compares favorably to Signal Hill. But in general all Long Beach neighborhoods are seriously underrated compared to other towns in the South Bay or even North OC.

with the prices they get in cal hghts i dont know how you can call it underrated, most people i know would like to move there but cant afford it. I dont know where carroll park is so if that is a nice neighborhood then i think it is underrated since i never hear about it.

wrigley really is a huge area to be one neighborhood resulting in a lot of diversity of styles, income levels, safety and more which leads to some parts being underrated since they get lumped together with parts that are not as nice. the lesser parts of wrigley are a small corner compared to the rest of the neighborhood

Carroll Park is my personal choice for this topic, and the fact gavini hasn't heard of it confirms my view. One reason it is probably overlooked is that it is so small. Carroll Park is a little historic district sandwiched between Alamitos Beach and Bluff Heights, just below the beginning of "Retro Row" on 4th St. I don't live there, but I'd like to someday.

I also agree with SmokingGun that most of Long Beach is generally underrated. I blame Snoop Dogg and people who comment on LB based off experiences like that one bad neighborhood they went to that one time, at night.
