Hi Everyone,

We are thinking of moving to Altadena, CA and are looking at houses near E. Calaveras Street near Garfield and Oliveras Streets. It's near the Mountain View Cemetery not far from Santa Anita Drive. This is west of Lake Ave and south of Altadena Dr. I know that the old adage was that you should try to stay east of Lake otherwise thing start getting sketchy.

Do you think this still applies? I know that Altadena has been undergoing changes. Would you consider this area safe to walk in at night? is the area improving and will it improve over time?

Thanks.

OP, where do you currently reside? I ask because 15 years ago, almost to this very day you posted that you and your wife were looking to buy a home in Pasadena. Did you ever make that purchase? If so, its pretty close to Alta Dena so you probably have a really good idea of what the location is like. Unless its a significantly larger home than what you (may) have now in Pasadena, I would think that its a small step down as far as being a "desirable" area.
