Great for the shopper ... or great for the shopping thieves?

There are thieves everywhere in any city. Love that Mall! There are so much shopping though outside the mall too.

If you looked at the numbers, it's really bad at the mall there.

The rest of the city is nowhere near as bad, however.

No arguments there. I prefer the Heights (Azusa/Amar) over the same stores around Puente Hills, and Restaurant Row (+ more places in Eastland) in Covina is nice too.

(Quick history: the Eastland shopping center used to be a mall many years back. A May Company at the east end, Mervyn's at the west end, and in a structure that looked dated even back in the 80's, many vacant spots between the two.)

Yeah,the numbers look bad,I don't have a problem when I visit there.Some nice quiet areas except Azusa Ave. Looks more like a freeway! But really,it is really changing,I like it!

There is an Asian Plaza.Crossing Merced and Glendora, With this World Buffet. There used to be the Hong Kong Market,now it's a different outfit. Good restaurants,you may want to try out.

I used to live in Covina from 1994-2009. I can agree with some of the posters that this city has gone way downhill since I first moved here because a lot of gangs have moved in from cities like Baldwin Park and La Puente.

My kids have all gone through the public schools here in the South Hills area. Mesa Elementary was an excellent school that my kids enjoyed going to and the teachers were the best. Sierra Vista Middle School was a decent school because their was a slight gang element there. The honors classes there were amazing and had the best teachers on campus. South Hills High School was a good high school way better than Covina and Northview.

I would definitely recommend the South Hills area but anywhere else in Covina/West Covina is not good.

I agree with you. South Hills is still a good public school district.

Another piece of history - Azusa Ave., SR-39, was intended to be a freeway back in 1958. The Huntington Beach Freeway would've ran from the 210 down to PCH.

That didn't happen, of course.

Thanks a lot guys me and my wife drove through West Covina, Covina, and. We felt that West Covina around the mall and Covina looked a bit run down to us. We did like the South Hills area a lot and we thought that Walnut was a really beautiful area so we will definitely look more into Walnut then.
