Hello, I am looking for 2 bed 2 bath rental in one of these cities Alhambra, South Pasadena, Pasadena
My budget is 1600$ max. I've been looking in the area for two weeks, but I rarely found something for rent

I will be thankful if anyone can give me:
Street names that has apartment complex.
Any recommendation for a specific place will be appreciated.


I'm a student in USC my older sitter goes to Chapman University in Orange. She doesn't mind the commute time. Did we choose good cities to live?? any suggestions?

Your budget is pretty light for a 2/2 and the areas you are looking at are desireable neighborhoods.

2/1 you can find all day. 2/2, not so much.

Downey's awful; your sister's right. Stick with Alhambra or San Gabriel on that budget.

rabra, I am glad you found something. I was about to suggest San Gabriel and thank God you didn't do Downy. I am a bit surprised anyone would suggest that as an option for someone looking in the Pasadena, So Pasadena area..

That's because Downey is the city that makes sense for their commutes. Her sister would have an awkward commute route going to Chapman Univ from South Pas or San Gabriel.

They aren't investing in a house--they are just students living here for a few years.

Downey's pretty dangerous, especially for people who don't know the area.
