Nice neighborhood with access to many hiking and walking paths. Quiet and conveniently located. Not a lot of traffic.
The North Valley / Los Ranchos Neighborhood is a very quiet and delightful neighborhood in the Albuquerque area. The area has relatively older infrastructure, as well as an older population, but is beautiful and homey in its own way.
I grew up here in Los Ranchos and now as an adult have chosen to continue living here. It is a safe area with great schools close to the river which keeps everything green even here in New Mexico.
I feel safe and secured by our Corrales Police Department . It's nice to always see the around and taking care of the community.
Corrales is a nice quiet village outside of the main city, Albuquerque. The view of the Sandia Mountains are unbeatable . Yes I'm hearing more crime near by but Corrales Police are always on it!
her we get to see all the seasons .
The crime is a major and growing problem in Albuquerque. There are several carjackings a week and most of the perpetrators get away. While there is a police presence in Albuquerque they are not staffed to fight the rising crime level due to a lousy budget within the city. I owe it to the police for the dedication they give to protect and serve our communities. It is just hard to feel safe when carjackings and robberies are happening at random places and anytime of day.
The surrounding nature is the only thing Albuquerque has going for it. The increasing crime rate throughout the area makes one nervous when venturing out in the city. I believe no one should have to feel unsafe when traversing across their city. It is sad because there is so much potential in this city but the lack of motivation is eventually gonna be its downfall. If I had the chance to do it all over again I would choose to skip over Albuquerque and reside somewhere else in the United States. New Mexico is the worst in education and their political leaders are not taking the right steps to better it or the other assets of the state. These factors are making Albuquerque a harder place to enjoy and I think if these problems are not fixed it will only get worse.
I feel that it cold be a little safer, but overall it seems to have good protection. maintenance need improving as well.
sketchy people hang around the parks
I have lived here my entire life, and I would not move anywhere else. The weather is not as severe and scary as other areas of the state and the country. Additionally, this area does not have a lot of pollution like bigger cities that I have visited. The people are friendly and the public places are kept up.
It's in the middle of Albuquerque so noting it too far. It's around multiple stores for necessities. I would live here again!
Local business is present, there is a great restaurant called Flying Star that is a local favorite as well as other local shops around it, the location of it is also great on Rio Grande Boulevard.
Weather here is okay, not too bad not really in a dangerous area. There are concerns at times for drought or of the water rises at the rio grande. That is close by.
There is a night club/ bar called Leos, its usually just busy the weekends from what I hear they have entertainment, food and a good turn out. When I pass by there seems to be a lot of people.
I don't think there is much opportunity for one to find a job. A lot of the fast food jobs are taken by the younger generation. You kind of either work at a gas station or wal mart. You kind of deal with it if you dont have any other options,
Local businesses are convenient, popular stores are the Family dollar, Dollar tree for quick snacks, household items, cosmetics. There is a Walgreens open til 10pm. The stores are very close and you can get a bit of everything in each store or combined items from each store. There's a wal mart a bit a ways over the bridge if you needed to really shop.
