Where is this and what's the neighborhood like over there? Temperature throughout the year (esp the summer months)? Is it a nice area to live in? Is it safe?

I see on the map that it's near Glendale, but have no idea about the area at all.

The hood is swell, and the band was pretty good too.

91020 is a great area. Quiet, middle class and convenient (shopping and transportation). Schools are also good, as the API score for Crescenta Valley HS is pretty high. I lived here for a few years and enjoyed it.

Temperature is about the same as in Glendale and Pasadena, which is hot in the summer months. Area is pretty safe.

Thanks. I'm hearing downton Montrose is similar to downton Monrovia (which I've been to, once), so it's a smaller, more quaint, sleepy kind of town.

Something to keep in mind.

We really like Montrose. We go to brunch and dinner there at a few restaurants on Honolulu Ave., and every Sunday they have a Farmer's Market which closes Honolulu in downtown Montrose.

If you get a chance, go there on a Sunday and check it out. It has a very "small-town" feel, and yet it is relatively close to downtown LA, Pasadena, and other spots.

We were looking at homes in Montrose, but ended up settling just a little South of there in the Rossmoyne area of Glendale.

I, too, like the farmer's market. It is always fun to go to.

Say, have you ever tried Portobello's? It's Italian and a great place if you've never tried it.

Also, how about that Trader Joe's...?
