Cute city, price as usual
We're living in the Helms Bakery area of Culver City. Planning to return to Oregon because we miss trees and rain. Here are the things I've gathered from my apartment living near La Cienega:
-Downtown Culver City is bustling and fun. A very cute area with new shops all the time. I love being so close to Trader Joe's, too.
-We have had a number of insect problems: roaches, termites (?), ants, silverfish, mosquitoes, flies, spiders... Finally seems to have settled down a bit
-We seem to be very close to wealth and low income crime at the same time.
-Almost no homeless out this way.
-Great bus takes you straight to downtown during rush hour, and back at night.
-Very cool compared to some of the valleys. We manage to get the sea air, just not as much as Santa Monica or Marina Del Rey.
-Many very nice parks; we have one within walking distance that we love
-Somewhat bike friendly: bike lane on Venice, bike path along the Ballona Creek Read More
