Nice resonably-priced working class burb of LA - 10/17/2009
To start off with this entry is for the City of San Fernando not the San Fernando Valley as whole. I wish people talking about the Valley as a whole and the many communities of LA would post there instead of here. The City of San Fernando is a small city 1 mile by 2.5 miles and only has about 23,000 people living here. It's a largely working class bedroom community for Los Angeles. The commute to most parts of the valley isn't that bad. It is served by 3 major freeways the 210, the 118 and the 5. Commuting into the basin or downtown could take 30 minutes to an hour but if you're commuting to another part of the valley say Burbank it's a 15 minute commute. It is one of the few places in the NW San Fernando Valley that is actually affordable and safe. Housing prices in Southern California are high but San Fernando isn't all that bad. I bought a house in '09 for around 200,000 and it's on a 7200 sq. ft. plot. Try buying something in Burbank, Studio City, or Northridge for Read More

San Fernando Valley - Northwestern portion of LA. - 10/2/2009
I have lived in the San Fernando Valley practically my entire life. This is a part of Los Angeles that is far enough from the bustling downtown areas yet still with plenty to do. And the climate is unbeatable. However, it is expensive to live here: high State income tax, high sales taxes; generally, the cost of living is very high here with exception of property taxes which were capped at 1% by prop. 13 many years ago.
Best of all is the variety of things to do and places to go. It takes about a half hour to get to some of the best beaches in the US. During the winter, great snow skiing is less than an hour away. The high deserts are close also. Culturally speaking, there is almost nothing missing here. Many actors and musicians live in this general area and we sometimes see them here and there. If you want to check out some of the nicest estates in the US, Beverly Hills and many other exclusive areas are nearby. I love it here, but as I approach retirement (I'm 56 yrs old now), Read More

You Don't Always Get What You Pay For... - 7/6/2007
Everything here is way over-priced. From the water to the price of housing everything is jst outrageous. If you don't make $5k/mo you can't afford anything. Don't try raising a family because you'll need to get two jobs just to support one child. If you can avoid moving here then by all means do Read More
