Drive around. It's Van Nuys. What are you expecting? The location you are listing is one of the nicer areas, but you're a block down from Spearmint Rhino Strip club.

Van Nuys is heavily latino, def ghetto suburban. Crime rates aren't nearly as bad as they were 10 years ago, but property crime is still an issue.

The good news for that location is you can place Van Nuys on your perma-avoid list and do all your shopping and business in Sherman Oaks and Encino since you are close to those areas.

Tom Selleck grew up in a large mansion style home on Weddington. His parents lived there for a long time. I used to paint curbs all over the Valley and met a lot of folks knocking on doors, for payment. Scotty, from Star Trek lived there. Tom Selleck says in many interviews that he grew up lower to middle class. Not true. His parents were wealthy Detroit real estate owners, then later wealthy Valley Landlords. Selleck grew up a priveleged life, and spoiled, on Weddington. A lot of wealthy Jewish media people live on Weddington now. I collected money from the Olsen twin's parents, Judge Wapner, Katherine Bach, right after she married her final husband who recently committed suicide. ( and many others ).

Bought a lovely 1925 home in Van Nuys in 1991. We reached out to the neighborhood and were embraced. We beat back the gangs and we hope some day to beat back the negativity that people hold about Van Nuys. The potential for the Van Nuys Blvd. to be another Colorado Blvd. is there. And does anyone remember what Colorado Blvd. in Pasadena was like in the 70's? All it took was vision to turn it around.

I understand you and appreciate your vision and positive mindset ... However, that takes vision and a lot of money, and 100% American vision and ingenuity. The huge problem is Van Nuys is now almost 100% Mexican owned and occupied. The Colorado Blvd and most of Pasadena is still mostly American owned and operated. Van Nuys will always be what it is today, and for the last 25 years. Or since the mid 1980s. Hispanic or Mexican occupied. I think 95% of every business store front on Van Nuys Blvd is Hispanic - Mexican owned. So, your comparison of Colorado Blvd carries no merit.

My two cents
