Alhambra Reviews

I like Alhambra because of its numerous scrumptious restaurants that won't empty your pockets! Also, the neighborhood is great. There are a lot of Asians in the city. Additionally, there has been a stigma that Asians are not good drivers and there is some truth to that. The streets are clean and it smells like food most of the time, again because of the various food that are located in here. Overall, I like this neighborhood.
Alhambra is a safe neighborhood located in the center of many known destinations. This city has become progressive and has built many restaurants, markets, and small businesses. This expansion is located inthe heart of Alhambra on Main Street. I have lived in his city for about 17 years and I could see myself here for another 17.
The change I would like to see in my city, is the aid of the homeless population merging their way into Alhambra from neighboring cities. Maybe Alhambra can provide aid and resources at the local Salvation Army. Other than that, I love the city of Alhambra for what it offers and its geographic location center of the beaches, mountains, deserts, and amusement attractions.
As a current resident of Alhambra my overall experience of living here from the time I was born is fair and comfortable. Our city may not be the most wealthiest community nor do we thrive in the safest area yet we as a whole have a relative understanding of each other and the current economy. Residents in Alhambra are friendly and helpful with each other, we provide help when it's needed and evaluate our best options for the community through many terms of thought and discussion.
