It's a diverse and nice community and provides many needs and is close to other metropolitan areas. It also is part of the San Gabriel Valley and has a plethora of diverse restaurants and shopping markets. Its safe to walking around and though neighborhoods can be denser (more apartments) residents are cordial and friendly.

The area where I live has turned into a racial non-diverse city. Children are growing up surrounded by the same type of people and are often shocked to find that there is a whole other world outside. We are not progressing fast enough compared to other countries and may even be falling behind because we are sheltered.

Crime rate is low compared to other areas surrounding Alhambra. There are a lot of restaurants all over the area, as well as stores. Employments is rising due to new businesses opening. Traffic is real bad and the city is heavily congested.
