    Food & Drink at Alhambra: In my area, there are many varieties of restaurants with affordable prices. Not only are the prices inexpensive, but many cultures allow greater interaction of cuisines, such as Cha Cha Chili.
    • 2
    Employment at Alhambra: There are employment opportunities, but I believe that they are not worth the time and effort due to the miniscule salary and the long hours. Many store owners in my area work 8-5 with a small salary, since the store is still small.

    Local Businesses at Alhambra: The stores around my area are average, considering that even though there are many of them, they are often small and expensive. For example, there are many dollar stores, but they are limited by their quality.
