Hi,

PB is alright. People drive so slow in PB. Drives me crazy sometimes. Parking is horrible around most holidays like July 4th. Beware. This a lot of traffic coming in and out of PB since the only way to get in is really Grand or Garnet. Once you live here, you will discover the side streets. Note: People are not alert here. They will walk right in front of a moving car. This took me a while to get used to since people don't do this on the East Coast. If you want quiet don't move to PB.

Did it all the time in Boston, the difference is no one tried to mow me down (I've almost been hit walking probably 10 or 11 times on Ingraham).

PB is getting a lot more ghetto these days, I feel bad for all those east coasters that came here a few years ago and bought 2 million dollar shacks thinking this was a sure bet. (well not too bad).

Anyone who has lived in PB or MB for more than 10 years knows what it is about and knows the problems never really go away, they are just better hidden some years.

You live in PB until you are 30 and then move to Del Mar.

Eh, as long as you don't live on Grand or Garnett, this is all way overstated. I have friends who lived on Beryl for 10 years and has had only one incident in all that time. I lived on Jewell for 4 years and only had one as well. Most people associate PB with those two street and Mission Bay Drive where the most action is. North and South PB are fine and there are many people over the age of 30 who happily live there. Stay away from the bars and major apartment complexes and it's a great place to live.

Really? I found the New England driver to be the worst in the country - - even with the crosswalk laws. Couldn't tell if they were stupid or just didn't care about the laws. Although I was always careful when crossing Ingraham after a certain time of night.

PB is mostly college kids packed in two to a room so they can afford to live at the beach. The end result of having so many people living in so small an area is there is no street parking. Good luck.
