I have been a resident of the VanNuys city for over 15 yrs, and I am quite pleased considering the financial side of things. Compared to the surrounding areas the cost of living is affordable but the further south you go the prices start to rise. The city is overcrowded, parking in the streets is very difficult to find because most houses have more then a single family household, and the surrounding apartment buildings don't offer their tenants with suitable parking spaces. The crime rate is high, and I believe it is an unsafe area where you do not feel safe to walk at night.
Review Van Nuys
I really like how everything such as groceries, laundromats, hospitals are very close by some are even walking distance. Public transportation is abundant. There are many restaurants with a diversity of foods from mexican, Chinese, middle eastern etc. There are also many places where you can receive public assistance such as free after school care for children, W.I.C whic helps new mom's with formula assiatance.
I grew up in this city. I have lived here my entire 24 years of life. In fact, I have lived at the same house my entire life. It is safe to say that I love everything about it! I love the unique diversity, the weather, and the community.
