Well if we are all gonna go with Burbank, why not throw Glendale in there as well. Although it's a little pricier though I believe. Outside of LBC, SoBay, WLA, and SW SFV, LA is a little more confusing to me. LOL.

The address part is the postal address - varies with zip code. I live in the city of Huntsville but I have to use Owens Crossroads as my mailing address. If I put in my zip of 35763 and "Huntsville" into one of those online ordering forms (like Amazon) it gets rejected. Likewise, if someone put the Newbury Park zip code and Thousand Oaks it would probably also get rejected.


Back to the original post...did we ever figure out where the original poster was working (before we started recommending Burbank and Glendale and other places)?

"Not so much" on Glendale. The school district is arguably better there, but we haven't found it to be as "friendly" a community for families. It has more than twice the population, is spread over a larger area, etc. I'm sure there are differing opinions on this, but Burbank feels like a community -- Glendale feels like a city.

Burbank and Glendale aren't answers to the OP - they are answers to a piggyback poster starting at post #18.

Torrance, rolling hills estates, redondon beach hermosa beach some parts of san pedro and lomita torrance will probabyly be the cheapest and it has no gangs redondo beach has mexican gangs and lomita has 1 mexican gang but the ther cities are all "CLEAN"

The thing about L.A. is that you just can't beat the weather. Unfortunately, that information is not a secret, and people flock here for that reason. Because of the population overload that we have here, traffic is miserable and even a simple shopping trip to the grocery store is pure hell - no parking, a million people in the store, standing in long checkout lines...

The good thing about this population explosion is that property values and rent prices are increasing because there is a housing shortage. Because it's getting more expensive to live here, many white people have decided to buy houses in the "crappier" areas of town. Often, the crappy areas are just next door to some very nice areas, so if you can live in a house that's two blocks away from a nice area, and if that house costs you $200k less than a house in the nice area, then why not buy it?

So, gentrification is the general trend these days, which is good because generally speaking, white people don't participate in gang activity and similar b.s.

Because of the gentrification trend, our neighborhoods are becoming nicer across the board. That having been said, there are still some properties that have 15 people living in a 2-bedroom house (with probably 10 of those 15 people being illegal aliens), so we're not out of the water yet by any means, but it is getting better in that respect.

On the other side of the coin are all of the symptoms of the population explosion that I already mentioned: gridlock traffic and so many people that your quality of life just suffers tremendously. If you have a nice house with a pool that allows you to escape the hot weather, and if you have the luxury of staying at home during the "traffic hours" and only leaving the house when less people are out and about, then you're lucky.

But for the vast majority of people, they commute one hour to work and one hour from work each day, in gridlock traffic. They struggle to survive and breathe in a city that's just suffocating them. And if you want to speak about the quality of people here... well, as you probably already know, we have a lot of actor/actress wannabees here, and of course 99.9% of them will never hit it big in Hollywood, but by nature, these people are quite narcissistic and self-absorbed, and you can imagine how it is to be living among a lot of such people.

And the Mexicans here are just making the city a trash dump, refusing to spay/neuter their dogs and cats and letting them run wild in neighborhoods. These animals are producing so many puppies and kittens that the animal shelters are so overwhelmed. My sister used to live in Van Nuys and she would find kittens once a month - a new litter once a month - either in her backyard, in her front yard. Sometimes the kittens were dead, having been attacked by a dog or just not being able to survive hot weather. Mexican culture teaches that animals should not be spayed/neutered and that they belong to "the neighborhood" instead of belonging to individual people; thus, the animal runs free all over the neighborhood, procreating with every member of its species that it can find, until it either gets hit by a car, or gets picked up by the local animal shelter. There's a REASON why 99% of the dogs at the Los Angeles animal shelters are either pit bulls or chihuahuas. Mexicans LOVE pit bulls and Chihuahuas! If the Mexicans don't like our laws and don't want to follow them, then they should go back to Mexico.
