Nice place to live. Love the Hills and wildlife. Nice neighbors. Wish there was more to do, can get boring at times. Only gym is the YMCA, which is nice, but wish there was a 24 hour fitness or something other than just the Y. Rent prices are getting too high.

Neighborhood is beautiful. Located in valley, school provides top notch education and it is a very safe neighborhood.
I love where I live because it has a healthy mixture of pretty much everything. The beach is about forty-five minutes away, you have the mountains right on your doorstep, and the town isn't too far from Downtown LA. Not only does La Crescenta provide its residents with entertainment, but the community is heavily involved in the high school. As a student, I felt like I had a strong support system in and out of school. The community is safe and I would choose to live here again in a heartbeat. As far as the future of La Crescenta goes, I think the town will continue to grow. There are lots of small businesses and I feel like it makes my town that much more personal.
