Oh thanks for the intimation on Covina. And just to add, I have no kids. It's just me and my wife.

In your earlier post you mentioned about the Asian neighborhoods - Alhambra, Temple City and San Gabriel. Are these the only Asian ones near Rosemead-Irwindale?

They are the ones I recommend for you. You can throw in Rowland Heights. Drive around. You may or may not like them. But you won't robbed as generally safe places. Covina proper is a different story.

West Covina has a large Filipino population.

"The 2010 United States Census reported that West Covina had a population of 106,098. The population density was 6,594.3 people per square mile (2,546.1/km˛). The racial makeup of West Covina was (42.8%) White (15.3% Non-Hispanic White), (4.5%) African American, (1.0%) Native American, (25.8%) Asian, (0.2%) Pacific Islander, (21.3%) from other races, and (4.4%) from two or more races. Persons of Hispanic or Latino origin were (53.2%)."

You mean YOUR discussion. Covina is the 'hood? Ever been to Covina? Sent your kids to Covina schools or lived in the Covina Hills area? Why do you continue to comment on areas to which you have never even been?

To the OP, don't confuse West Covina with Covina.

It's my opinion only. Don't mean to offend you at all if that's the problem.

Sorry for the delay, been on the road a bit recently. I would say first that my recommendations were based on your original post which made no mention of schools and kids. I was strictly going by my own personal observations and experience in the area and suggesting areas where there seems to be more people from South Asia as well as your desire to live near both Rosemead and Irwindale (otherwise I'd be pointing you at the Artesia area). Be aware that the further east you go, the longer and less pleasant the trip west in the A.M.and east in the P.M. The 10 freeway and 605 are both brutal rush hour drives in the area you are considering and I was mostly considering towns where you could avoid these and have alternate surface street routes to your destination(s).

West Covina and Covina are both cities with neighborhoods which can vary widely in respect to livability, noise, safety, etc. In Covina, the Charter Oak area as well as other east side neighborhoods are just as good as any other middle income communities in the SGV. This would be the first place I'd look.

West Covina has some really expensive neighborhoods, especially near the South Hills Country Club and the hills abutting Walnut. Your problem will be finding the type of rental you desire in these neighborhoods at the price you want. Other neighborhoods with lots of apartments are not usually in the best areas of WesCo but they do usually have more shopping, dining, etc. nearby.

Both towns have areas of high density multi-unit housing giving largely over to Section 8 residency. These are usually not such a red hot place to live although there are exceptions. Some of the older construction (pre- WWll) have nice duplex and 4-plex type units that might be in your price range but the ones I have seen are almost always single bedroom.

East LA County is full of Asian neighborhoods. Alhambra, Temple City, San Gabriel that you mentioned. Throw in Arcadia, Rosemead, part of El monte as well. Further east, Rowland/Hacienda Heights area, Diamond Bar, and even Chino Hills have plenty of asian population and businesses. Walk-ability is not so much of a city thing but rather neighborhood specific. West Covina has some apartments on Azusa that has a good portion of apartments that are walking distance to a Filipino Market, Target and some restaurants.
