The Colony Reviews

Compared to everywhere else in the country, I'm sure this area would compare positively. However, compared to every other area I have lived in in So Cal, it is the sketchiest. Parking is awful and I do not feel very safe walking at night. Noise level is terrible and police don't do much when the neighbors are blaring LIVE mariachi music at 1 AM on a weeknight. There are stray animals all over. It is very dirty here.

The area is improving, with nice new establishments and apartments being built -- but some have already been tagged by local troublemakers.

At the crack of dawn, the neighborhood stirs with there daily duties, children are complaining and are irritable of having to drag themselves to school. Parents start sizzling up a hearty breakfast for there children and the smell of coffee wafts through the morning air. At about 6:30am children and teens start there journey to there educational institution, buts what i find hilarious is as they walk, they look like the living dead, moaning and complaining up until they see there friends they perk right up. After the children and teens leave there homes, the grown ups gather around to complain or gossip about the neighborhood gossip. They gossip about some lady being unfaithful, or how Maria's belly increasingly grew into a watermelon after getting knocked up by John who currently resides in a different neighborhood, or how there children are exceeding there parents expectation on there grades. If i do it all over again, I would choose to live here again cause i was raised here and it reminds me of home and I wouldn't have it any other way.
The neighborhood in Anaheim in which I live in is very quite and has several schools nearby. They have several community afterschool programs to help kids and pearson park offers entertainment like plays or even insights to cultural diversity with polynesian dances and other dances. The library is kept very clean and nice and the police department is not very far. Some areas of Anaheim I would not feel safe in but my area is pretty safe and I believe the city council is doing a great job in making the unsafer areas feel safer. For example the glover stadium park had alot of homeless people sleeping there and the city counselor transformed the park areas into a dog park, which I think was great. A good way to use the land. Disneyland is not too far and the schools have been remodeled too.
