I love living in Pacoima, it has a busy atmosphere that does not come off as too loud especially at night. The general area where I live, a middle school is only 2 blocks away from my house and going the opposite direction an elementary school is close by 1 block away. Surrounding my area are food markets and department stores including a handful of fast food restaurants sprinkled in my neighborhood. The community here are very charismatic and kind to everyone.My overall experience living in Pacoima has been a positive one and I love living in my community.

Ive been here my whole life. Ive never had anything bad happen to me, but Ive hear others tell me scary stories. Ive hear about a lot of robberies. What I like about my neighborhood is that it has lots of Mexican culture in it. There lots of places that serve good authentic Mexican food. I have seen a change in my community. Lately they been trying to remodel lots of location that are starting to look old. I believe my neighborhood had lots of potential and its full of amazing people with wonderful personalities.
Pacoima has a sense of community, neighbors usually help one another so we are kept up to date with what is going on. I wouldn't know if to say it is 100% safe, there is a bullet hole in my mom's mini van, whose muffler was stolen during our first year here, and the glass of the back of the car was broken. Also, you can usually hear cars speeding down streets at night, and it is hard to distinguish if they are bullets or fireworks. On the other hand, there is a lot of culture shown through beautiful murals all around the community, with small family run businesses everywhere.
