Review of Gilroy, California

Gilroy is no place for young workforce families or

Trust me, I love the ecosystem in Gilroy but the truth is that city as a whole does not care about its youth(nor the silicon vally in general but gilroy takes the cake)nor the environment. The whole area is about stress and greed. Sure there are exceptions of wonderful people, but if you expect central/north coast culture or things like food co-ops and real community events(not booth fairs)
Or your idea of a place to live is bike friendly, kid friendly or working class friendly...keep moving. Sure its better than some(everywhere is)but if you care about not living in a place where no one really cares about downtown or each other and considers the gym and staying at home watching screens THE thing to do, other than shopping at big box will be miserble here.
Its too bad, too this town had a lot going for it once, but now its really a mess and what community is/was there, most haved moved north.
