El Portal Reviews

I have been a resident of El Portal for almost 2 years. I can truly say it has not been hospitable for me. My car has been vandalized this past year. The people are very nosy. The housing market is ridiculous and overpriced in this average neighborhood. A par studio can range from $800 to $1000 when you have little amenities. Secondly, the traffic is loud. Police and firefighter sirens go off early in the mornings, construction is everywhere and the train comes three times a day. Lastly, you must be bilingual to obtain great employment opportunities. I think learning a second language should not be a requirement: SPANISH IS A MUST OR PREFERRED. The nightlife is great. You can go to the club, the mall, the movie theaters, fine restaurants, the beach and go shopping within a 25 mile radius. In other words, if you are single with no children and a party-goer, I assume this city is the best place for you. I cannot handle the noise, intrusion and the fast-paced environment.

cute little community with loads of plant life and friendly people. Lots of cats hang around too with is great.
Things are definitely changing. The further west you go the worse the houses seem to get. The further south you go the worse the houses seem to get. At one point Wynwood was full of culture despite the poverty in the area and not the rich are moving in with their expensive store and people that have lived their for decades are being forced to move out because prices are going up.
