Living in Glendale has been alright. There are some very nice people, but the people living here are mostly pretty mean. It's pretty diverse, but Armenians are the majority here. Some of the Armenian teens are fairly rude. Just the other day I was driving and a couple of guys just take their time crossing the street illegally. They think they own the street! Other than that, there are some pretty nice restaurants and stores. The cars here are dangerous, however. There's always people speeding and beating the red light. And similar to the teens thinking they own the street, it's similar to driving. Very often you'd see people taking up the whole street with their hazards on, waiting to pick someone up. I'd like to see the people become more courteous to each other in this city.
Review Glendale
Glendale is a beautiful city, boasting large community parks, lots of free community YMCA andYMWA sponsored programs and classes. Additionally, the city offers you the chance to step back in time! The Americana (developed by Caruso Properties), is a lush outdoor shopping and residential area, complete with synchronized fountain displays, Parisian styled architecture, and the best hits of Frank Sinatra, which play throughout the day or night. I have the benefit of living in Glendale's mountainous community, just south of Montrose, which, in my opinion, is the best part of Glendale! It's beautiful, remote (hard to find in LA), and very family friendly!
Glendale is not only a family-oriented city, but also the safest one among all. Compared to other regions in the LA county, Glendale provides such a secure environment that even children shouldn't be afraid to go out at night! Firefighters and Police officers also do their best to provide the citizens with all of their needs in the quickest amount of time. Housing prices are very affordable too. Glendalr is the perfect city you are looking for!
