Growing up on the border of Studio City, Valley Village, and North Hollywood, I've learned the ins and outs of all three cities. I moved directly into Studio City about ten years ago expecting it to be the safest of the neighboring cities which grew to be less and less true over the past few years. Although the neighborhoods tend to be rather tight-knit communities with tons of families and having an online safety network to combat the dangers, Studio City has been riddled with large homeless population. This has resulted into an increase of crime within the neighborhoods, whether it be robberies, attempted break ins, etc. Recently my own home has been subjected to an attempted break-in which resulted in the police taking thirteen minutes to respond to the call while a man attempted to break a window and the front door. Overall Studio City provides a nice area for the average family, but has some serious safety issues that need to be addressed.

Ah Studio City. Where to begin? Well firstly, WOW! It's a great place to live, what can I say? Well "AWESOME" is one way to put it. Man I love this place.

It's a quiet neighborhood but not boring by any means. There are plenty of things to do and places to see.
I grew up in this neighborhood and it has been the best experience!

Growing up with friendly neighbors and living walking distance from a park was great. My family has a dog and we take her out to walk everyday, so it was necessary for us to live close to one.

I went to local schools, such as Campbell Hall, Immaculate Heart etc.
I think my family and I have had a great experience here and couldn't be happier.
