Are there any good areas in Burbank? I saw a listing online for a condo in west burbank on N Maple St. between W Oak St and W Heffron Dr. The listing said there is nearby shopping and restaraunts. Is this is a good area of town? If not, can anyone recommend apartments/condos in a good area of Burbank?

Thanks.

Burbank doesn't really have any bad areas. The only part I don't recommend living in is the triangle between I-5 and Van Owen Blvd. near the airport. That area is kind of industrial.

I've noticed no matter what apartment I look at online they always say "Close to Shopping and restaurants and schools."
"Nice log cabin in the middle of the beautiful Apalacian Mountains...close to shopping and schools"

In Burbank, and most of LA, there is shopping all over. You have to remember, these are old areas -- not planned subdivisions like they have in Arizona or Florida. Also, these areas are high density.

I know when I lived in other states, it was often miles before you found a restaurant or a grocery store (or even a mini-market). Here, you can usually measure the distance in blocks.

Good point. Most of LA was built before the modern conception of suburban subdivisions. Yes, there are a lot of single family homes in LA, but it's more "city-suburban" if that makes sense. Most streets are laid out in the grid pattern with residential areas directly backing the main commercial strips, not separated from each other by large patches of open land serving as buffer zones. Most modern suburban communities across America follow a model closer to that of Santa Clarita than Burbank.

In the city, you can find stores in the middle of neighborhoods. Where we live now, on the same block, there is a small grocery store, a hair salon and a dry cleaner. They are surrounded by apartments. The grocery store actually carries cut meats and is more like a deli or an imported foods store than a 7/11.

That's why I hate it when people call LA "one big suburb" or "100 suburbs looking for a city" or whatever it is. If suburban is automatically equated with single family homes, then yes, LA is quite suburban. But in terms of subdivisions, commercial centers being completely segregated from residential zones, etc., LA is much more urban than your typical suburb.
